Looks like your end is behind NAT, and does not have the 82.* or the
193.* IP address, but probably a 10.* or 192.168.* address. You must
put in the REAL ip address on the box for your local end. If you are
within, then you might have a problem with tunneling
that (since then the "gateway" would technically be within the subnet)
