The linksys setup connects to the outside world fine.
When i setup the VPN tunnel, that also talks to and connects to the external card on the ISA box.
What i can't get to happen is for the internal ISA card to ping the remote clients. I keep getting [ Negotiating IP security ]. All the books say this should happen for say up to 4 seconds while security is established, then the ping should start up correctly, unfortunatly for not so ..
When I ping the ISA box from the remote client I can request timed out . oh joy.
I believe i have the IPsec rules and filter set up ok, but any advice on that matter would be great.
Has anyone had this problem when setting up a gateway to gateway with ISA before.
Hi Chris, I too am looking towards that solution. Can you give me any pointers? We are still sticking with pptp for now but that Linksys with vpn support sounds great. please email me as i have a lot of questions in regards to that

I have the 2 linksys routers up and running OK .
In this setup The ISA / W2K box is out of the new office loop.
Other than as a gateway for the fatory as usuall.
The Befvp41 to Befvp41 tunnel works just fine with me being able to ping and map drives no problem between the 2 191.168.1.x & 192.168.2.x lan's i have made.
Im going to go check my firewall rules, which also acts as a router as well, check that i ain't got any rules in place to drop ICMP packets
I will let you know how i get on .. I only got 2 more weeks to get it cracked .. LOL
Here is what I have.
============================= Befvp41 No1 [remote office] ============================= Ext ip : 195.44.x.x 255.255.255.0 Int ip : 192.168.2.x 255.255.255.0
Client Pc's : 192.168.x.x 255.255.255.0
============================== Befvp41 No2 [main office] ============================== Ext ip : 195.44.x.x 255.255.255.0 Int ip : 192.168.1.x 255.255.255.0
ClassA [subnet to B] network : 10.5.x.x 255.255.0.0
On our internal network we use a cisco router which has the network presences for both the 192.168.1.x , .2.x & 10.5.x.x lans.
The VPN tunnel works fine between the 2 routers and the 192.168.1.x & 192.168.2.x communicate fine. The 10.5.x.x and the 192.168.1.x also work fine.
What i can't get to happen is for the 10.5.x.x clients to ping the 192.168.2.x clients.
A trace route finds the 192.168.2.x & 10.5.x.x clients from either side on the first hop but then on the second hop instead of finishing it gives a timeout, so i guess it can't find a way back. ==================================================

Yes! The key to success is to have the same components talking to each other. You can create a gateway to gateway VPN between the linksys devices, and then create an ISA to ISA gateway to gateway tunnel inside the tunnel created by the linksys devices.
