Unfortunately the diag_ping page doesn't work for this task. [A few
minutes of my life were wasted on that one!] It seems to ping from the
WAN side without regard to the presence of the VPN.
You should ping from a client on the LAN to the m0n0 or client or
server on the far end of the VPN. Then the VPN comes to life after a
couple seconds (with net4501, maybe quicker with faster hardware).

>> Just create a rule to access the other side of the tunnel,
>> maybe allow icmp to remote network, then try pinging something....
