Both m0n0s are reachable between each ones, and to my ciscos is normal to
don't know about another routes more than the minimal owns.

To the ipsec viewpoint is there any differencies between to use the wan ifs
or the opt1 ifs?
So, if i setup a tunnel between the two opt1 interfaces (terminating on
them), between the two wireless networks (10.1.2 and 10.1.3), and default gw
on the laptops to the anothers networks, i could get the desired effect of
interconnect all networks?
In this manner, as long as i know, the laptops will connect to any host in
any network because the m0n0s knows every network they have attached to they

I'm right?
