Unable to ping beyond firewall Cisco VPN Client on 2 Wire Router

Using Cisco VPN Client 5.0.03.0560.  Works without fault everywhere except through a 2 Wire router.  VPN connects and packets go out, but nothing gets back in.  I have connected to the network successfully through so many different types of routers/modems I'm satisfied the problem is hidden somewhere in the 2Wire.

Perhaps replacing the router set it back to defaults which had IPSEC passthrough enabled.  That sounds more likely to me than just the IPSEC passthrough function not working.

Looks like it is blocking either outgoing or incoming echo requests. You would have to the port (113) to allow.

Sorry, are you saying I need to open port 113 on the 2Wire?

Actually, make sure you have IPSEC passthrough enabled on the 2wire.

That sounds right.  The 2Wire GUI isn't friendly and I have been unable to locate an option to permit IPSEC passthrough.  And, to my knowledge, there is no command line access to the device.

Other option is to contact whoever manages the VPN server and have them enable NAT-Traversal.

That would be me and I'm hoping for a solution which doesn't require offering anymore to the universe than absolutely necessary.  I'm going to take another stab at 2Wire support.  I lean toward your notion and I'd like to run it to ground before taking more drastic steps.  There MUST be a setting that can be adjusted on the 2Wire.

Perhaps, but resetting the Router should have accomplished the same end, which it didn't.  In the absence of 2Wire documentation which would allow me to locate/adjust the IPSEC passthrough we'll never know but my suspicion before I posted the question was in line with your suggestion.  Because you had enough interest to followup after the fact I'm going cancel the deletion and give you the points. persistence should be rewarded.  Thanks.
