for the company i work for i have recently developed a remorte site GPRS/3G soultion, where wireless routers have been installed with IPSec configured to create a VPN tunnel to our corporate network.

i installed a router a week ago and after 4 days it becoame uncontactable, i got another router out that i configured a few weeks ago, and that stoped working as well, but all our ADSL routers that have the same configuration on them are all ok. our wireless routers are failing at IKE phase 2 which i think is a bit odd, the only thing that is diferent between our ADSL routers and wireless GPRS/3G routers is the service provider.

i was wondering if Vodafone have the ability to block IPSec traffic,
i was thinking maybe they are doing this so companies dont stream VOIP traffic over an encrypted tunnel,
as i understand it they dont want any VOIP traffic over the network?

They certainly could - but its unlikely they do so as to avoid voip traffic.  Some sort of NAT is more likely.

Your best solution is to ask them - say you are trying to use the cisco vpn client to talk to your employer's server for secure email, and its stopped working, and is there any reason why that would be the case?
