 ping problem
Author: xixi

I have set up an ipsec vpn between two computer ( belong to two different network eg. 10.0.1.1 10.0.2.1 ). These two computer work as gateway. Now the problem is, I only can ping on one way. that means I only can ping from 10.0.1.1 to 10.0.2.1. but no reply when I ping from 10.0.2.1 to 10.0.1.1. (no firewall)

what may be the problem?? So confuse about it......

I'm guessing your IPsec rules are not symmetric. They allow traffic only one way.

Can you see the pings using tcpdump?

I don't know. But at least now you have something to work with.
