[Openswan Users] really basic peer-to-peer setup

One potential complicating factor ... (solexa1, or on the other side) is not
the main firewall / gateway for its subnet, and everything in that
subnet uses as the default route.

But even when I try to ping from solexa1 to the private subnet side of
the other end of the tunnel I get nothing.
That should work shouldn't it?

i.e. the other end is with 2 private subnets and, and it occupies the .1 address on
both subnets.

I should be able to do this no :

root at solexa1:~# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
--- ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 3023ms

Here is part of the ifconfig on the other end

xenbr3    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1e:68:04:8f:f2
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
