I have a route for that, actually.  The problem is that there are many
subnets on the corporate side and some of them do not match the tunnel
'local' network definition.  For instance, say the local network is
defined on the corporate side m0n0 as 123.456.789.0/24... the packets
are leaving that network and going to another network, passing through a
NAT, (where I see them go with TCPdump) coming back, getting rewritten
with a source of 192.168.20.x and then hitting the corporate side m0n0.
The corporate side m0n0 sees that their source is 456.789.123.0/24 and
doesn't pass them thru the tunnel because they didn't come from
123.456.789.0/24.  This is what I think is happening anyway.  If I was
able to set the tunnel to accept packets from any source address, it
would work.  I can see the firewall dropping those packets in the log,
so I know they are getting at least that far.

Thanks for replying!

The source address shouldn't matter in any case, but it sounds like what
you're missing is a routing entry on the "corporate" side making the
tunnel the route for  This doesn't get set up
automatically, but you should be able to configure it under "Static
