Routing issue

Hi there.
Actually I'm on the same page. I've got the tunnel up and running but when I try to ping from the left site to right site I get response from leftnexthop: Destination host unreachable. And when I check the route table I see this:
Code:   UG    0      0        0 ppp0
I think that here I should see something like ipsec0 or something like that.

Hopefully we can help each other here. I'm still digging to find solution.

Re: Routing Issue

I'm no routing master, but it seems like I should be able to add the following on the Linux side:
route add -net netmask gw w.x.y.z dev eth1
where is the CISCO side LAN and w.x.y.z is the CISCO's public IP. But when I run it, I get a SIOCADDRT error.

I've been all over Google, trying various things. From what I've read about openswan, It should take care of the routing for you.

This link
was somewhat helpful, though it's openswan<->openswan.

Ok, so it's been a while since this thread was last active but I am in the same boat here and wondering if anyone actually got this resolved? I have the tunnel up but no pings between the two. Thanks in advance...
