First of all, in the P1 mode for both VPN endpoints, use mode = Main
(more secure, and is OK if your IP never changes).

Secondly, I'd be more interested to see the config.xml for the m0n0 on
the right.  Although I haven't tested how duplicate routes will be
handled in m0n0, there are probably two ways you can try to make this
routing wrok out.

I am assuming on the m0n0 on the right you are using VPN and getting
the remote subnet of  And, because of that, nothing
routes over the VPN if it doesn't hit that particular defined subnet. 
If so, you can either

1) go to System->Static Routes.  Set interface to LAN, set destination
network to everything (which I think is and/or
and set your gateway to (note it is NOT
because if you set that then everything bypasses the VPN tunnel).


2) go to your VPN settings on the right m0n0.  Set the remote network
to and/or to have all of your traffic routed over
VPN automatically.

Again, those are two things to try, and with my knowledge of
networking, should work... but I haven't messed with my static routes
yet so I'm not dead sure.  Go try those out and let me know what you
find out ;)
