It sounds as if you have your routes established....

But you don't seem to be getting traffic back.

First thing I would do, is tcpdump the tunnel, and try pinging, or try
accessing a port on your home network, and seeing if the packets come back
or not.

Second, I would look at all the firewalling rules, make sure I'm
permitting forwarding for all the networks in the setup.

Maybe its time I update earthling.2y.net/LinkingNets.html with a FAQ/What
to test when it does not work....

Also, what OSes are on the firewalls?
