O.k. after a LOT of mucking around I got the tunnel established using the 
default keys from the linux sources.

This is what I discovered:

1.		Time on server and client end must be CORRECT (e.g. must be newer than 		
		date certificates were made, VERY hard to do on a WRAP!!!)

2.		Server end creates tun0 interface with -- tunnel

3.		Client end creates tun1 interface with -- tunnel

4.		Cannot ping any address other than the local end of the tunnel due to the 
		tunnel ends being incorrect.

5.		Client machine will not respond to ANY requests on the WAN interface even 				
		though firewall rules exist to allow ICMP/HTTP/Everything through, and have 
		been recreated.

I am using a TUN device of course.

Any help on these issues is REALLY REALLY appreciated.  I am quite angry at it 
after spending the last 6 hours trying to get it working properly.
