I just wanted to state for the record that you were correct Jacco.  It was, in 
fact, the connection manager in the WM6 device that was causing the 
disconnect when I was trying to connect to my internal apache server.  I 
simply added the IP of my server to the exception list, and voila, I connect 
to my web page 8^)   It's really beautiful...wow do I have some possibilities 
now.  Thanks to Paul as well for providing the conclusive means to prove that 
I don't have an MTU problem.  It has to be my cell connection (and that's 
what I suspected but could not prove).  Thanks to you both.  I'm really 
enjoying Openswan/xl2tpd right now!
