As an added note on this, I don't know if I made myself too clear.
Being that the tunnel only forms when pinging from the left, this is a
big problem for us, since I can't do it during working hours because
users (on the right) sessions get severed. 

Our business structure has sessions initiating on the right end, but
m0n0wall only builds the tunnel when pinging from the left.
After that, everything seems fine.

I don't know what added info to include on this issue, but will be glad
to provide it if needed.
