I have two broadband networks; one is cable modem connected (call it net1), the other is DSL (net2).  Both broadband connections are DHCP assigned, however the net2 is assigned a private non-routable IP (ISP uses 172.x.x.x addressing).  Net1 utilizes dyndns.org to resolve to the current IP.  At each network a Linksys BEFSX41 sits behind the modem.  The local and remote secure nets on the VPN setups on both ends are configured for each other's full subnet.  Behind net1's router is a 10.0.1.0/24 network, and behind net2's router is a 10.0.2.0/24 network.  I can establish the VPN by letting net2's router initiate the connection to the dyndns.org FQDN.  Once connected however, I cannot ping 10.0.2.1 from a 10.0.1.x address, and vice versa.  Also tried http connections with no luck.

In the past, we used PPTP tunnels through the routers to create a server to server tunnel with no problem, but this needs to be hardware based now with no software based connections.

Any clues?

Being able to authenticate and establish the VPN but not being able to transfer data is a normal sympton of ip protocol number 50 (esp) being blocked. Contact your net2 ISP to ensure that esp is permitted.
