Try recompiling openswan klips without USE_MAST support?

I think you might be seeing both ipsecX and mastX devices, which I've
seen happening, and though it should not matter, seems to interfere
somehow. We're looking at making a module parameter to tell it
which virtual interface to initialise.

you could try: ipsec klipsdebug --all and run the test, then run dmesg.

If there is NAT involved, things might be moving to a different port,
wich might be causing firewall issues, but those should not be different
between klips and mast....
