I am trying to set up an IPsec VPN tunnel to a provider of a data service. I am using a Windows 2003 Server as my gateway and I have set up the IPsec records correctly I think. My gateway has two network cards, one to the LAN (192.168.111.0) and one public (213.888.555.155 "not the real one"). My provider has a VPN where I am going to reach a computer with the ip 192.168.30.23. The external IP of the providers server is 65.888.555.254 "no the real one". From my gateway I am now trying to ping 192.168.30.23 which as I understand it should automatically raise a VPN tunnel to 65.888.555.254 but this is not happening I think. I have also configured a statis route that says that 192.168.30.23 should use my gateways public interface and the gateway 65.888.555.254. If I write tracert 65.888.55.254 on my windows 2003 gateway it traces that one correctly. If I write tracert 192.168.30.23 it only sends 192.168.30.23 to my ISP it seems and then of course stops. Am I missing something here?
