I hope someone can help.
I am trying to connect to small offices together using two IPcop (v1.2.0)
boxes. I have done this before, but on this occaision it just refuses to
To explain, office A is setup as follows.
A single subnet of 10.0.0.0/24. Using an ADSL router to connect to the
internet. Green i/f of IPCop is set to 10.0.0.254. The red i/f is set to
one of three static ip's thay have. The adsl router has an internal and
external i/f and they are set to the two other static ip's. The gateway on
the ipcop is set to the internal of the router. They are connected to the
Office B is the same, except for the local subnet is 192.168.0.0/24. They
also can connect to the internet ok.
Following the advice of serveral FAQ's I setup both IPcops the same way.
Left 220.127.116.11 %defaultroute 18.104.22.168 192.168.0.0/24
Right 456.456.456.456 %defaultroute 456.456.456.457 10.0.0.0/24
Obviusly the external addresses I have used here are fake but other than
that evrything is the same. Unfortunately though, no ipsec route is
created. If I log on to the ipcop box and issue a netstat -nr I only get
one ipsec0 listed and I should get two. However I can ping and trace from a
machine on either LAN to the red i/f on the opposing IPcop box.
Any ideas, has my hairline is beginning to suffer.
