Netgear Prosafe FVS318 to FVS318

I am trying to understand why a Point to Point VPN between 2 Prosafe FVS318 would connect but not pass data.

I have 3 sites to connect together.  The first 2 use the same ISP over a T1 and connect with great speeds.  The third connects but doesn't pass data.  I can ping anything or log into server between site 1 and 2, but can't between even ping anything between 1 and 3, or 2 and 3.  The third site uses Comcast and is sitting behind a SMC Gateway 8014 in bridge mode.

Sorry no log files but the connection shows that it is up.  I will add notes and log files next time I am onsite.

The problem has been solved.  It was an issues with the comcast router trying to connect to the VPN (they hadn't cleared all of the settings).
