Did you try to ping/traceroute the gateways?
Remember, the emphasis on VPN is the "N".
You'll have to use machines _behind_ the gateways.
If you want to to secure traffic between gateways or between
net-gateway, you'll have to set up special connections.

BTW: You can use ifconfig to check where packets are dropped if you need to.
(See ipsec-FAQ for detailed description)
