[Openswan Users] Fedora 8 and Netscreen

Hi everyone,

I need a bit of help with a VPN I am setting up.  I need to connect to 
the company that I do work for, and they are using a Juniper Netscreen 
device on their end. I am able to bring the tunnel up but I can't seem 
to connect to the other end.

I'll post my configuration, maybe someone can point out what I have done 

When I type "ipsec --auto up myvpn" I get a success from what I can see:
004 "myvpn" #4: STATE_QUICK_I2: sent QI2, IPsec SA established

And this is my configuration:
conn myvpn

But when I run a traceroute on I can see it going 
through a bunch of hops, basically through the Internet just as if there 
was no VPN.  I check my route and I see: *      UH    0      0        0 ppp0
nrba-dsl.onlink *      UH    0      0        0 ppp0      *      U     0      0        0 eth1     *        U     0      0        0 eth2
link-local      *          U     0      0        0 eth1
default         *              U     0      0        0 ppp0

Now I can see that the first line is the VPN, but I'm thinking things 
aren't routing properly?  I'm not sure where to look from here.  My 
ultimate goal is to be able to telnet to one of the two IP addresses 
behind their firewall so I can do my work.
