After a few days of throwing the PC around the room I have managed to set up a 3rd Party VPN OpenSwan (2.4.4-18.2) to BM 3.9.1 on NW6.5 SP7, NATted at both ends on Cisco routers (no security on router) and NATted at the linux server as well. Ports UDP500, 4500, 353, and ESP passing through routers OK.

I have a tunnel working, IKE is up, IPSec is up. Remote Monitor shows the tunnel details correctly and the protected networks are shown in the bottom of the screen. But the tunnel is still "Pending".

I have errors in the audit log as follows (no others):

9/20/2008 01:12:16 PM VPN Control Send update cfg to 2 for type of mask = 31, typeofcfg = 1
9/20/2008 01:12:16 PM VPN Control Send update cfg to 1 for type of mask = 7, typeofcfg = 1
9/20/2008 01:12:10 PM VPN Control Send update cfg to 2 for type of mask = 31, typeofcfg = 1
9/20/2008 01:12:08 PM VPN Control Send update cfg to 1 for type of mask = 7, typeofcfg = 1

Can't ping from network to network.

The tunnel is initiated from the BM end (i see a TID 3532695 which might be similar)

I'm stuck again.
