Thank you guys - Paul, Peter and Matthew.
I applied the leftsourcip= and rightsourceip= changes advocated and
suggested, and I can ping the 10.243.102.x subnet from the 10.249.100.20
VPN server now.
However I still cannot ping the 10.249.100.x subnet from the
10.243.102.230 VPN server.
Now, the gateway for the 10.243.102.x domain is NOT the 10.243.102.230
machine, the gateway is 10.243.102.254.
I have manually added routes to the latter .254 machine to route all
traffic for the 10.249.100.x subnet through the 10.243.102.230 machine
(VPN Peer/Server). Sop I have to tweak something on the .254 machine to
allow 10.243.102.230 to ping the 10.249.100 subnet ?
