No, I re-read my message, and it's certainly NOT clear.  I guess it was 
late when I wrote it.  :-)  Let me start again.

I have an Optional interface, that I want to be able to go through my 
VPN (which is IPSEC) to another location.  It is on a seperate subnet 
than my LAN (, and the VPN is set up to establish from my 
LAN subnet to the other internal subnet ( at a different 
location.  Now, I've tried setting up an additional VPN from the Opt 
subnet (, to the network on the other side, and racoon 
seems to just ignore it.  It never tries to establish at all.  Maybe 
there is a limitation on how many tunnels can go to a single location?  
That being the case, I tried to route traffic to the remote subnet from 
my Opt1 subnet through the LAN interface.  This is where the problem 
comes in.  If I put in a route that says:

If from Opt interface, destined for the network, go 

it doesn't work.  I didn't really expect it to, but thought I'd give it 
a try.  The funny thing is, if I tracert from the 
network, to the network, the tracert goes nowhere, not 
even to the gateway of as I specified.  Without the route, 
it tries to go directly out the WAN interface (which it probably 
should), but obviously doesn't get very far because it's a private network.

Is there a way to get this to work that anyone can think of?  I really 
need to get from the network to the 
network any way I can.  A 2nd VPN seemed the first logical choice, but 
when I set it up, nothing happens, not even an attempt to connect.  Is 
there a way to route this traffic so it can reach the 
network through the VPN that does work?
