Thanks George

The link you suggested gave me the clues I needed to get the VPN up and running which has been running stable for over 2 weeks now :-)

After looking at the script things got a lot easier

Thanks again everyone for your help

I think your problem is to do with the IPSec policies. I have had a look
at using racoon as a VPN client and it looks a little bit different to
the LAN-LAN setup I am using (in terms of generating the policies.)

Have a look here:

Also, look at the files in your
"/usr/share/doc/racoon/examples/roadwarrior/client" folder.

Hope this helps,
