Note the "?", please. This is more fodder for thought than a request for an
answer. And I'm probably grasping at straw....
Smoothwall Express 3 uses Linux 220.127.116.11 and Openswan 2.4.15. Once or twice
in my testing to reproduce someone's VPN problem, I noticed that the system
panic'ed and restarted while it was booting or shortly after.
Is there a possibility that 18.104.22.168 and OS 2.4.15 don't like receiving IPSEC
or setup packets while the system is booting? Or can't handle receiving setup
packets out of order? Or a problem with how Smoothwall builds Openswan and
the kernel module(s)? I don't believe this had been noted before 2.4.15.
As I said, stuff to ponder.
