Sorry guys,

totally dead brain today .. .;-)

ports are udp/500 (isakmp)
protocol is 50 if using ESP and 51 if using AH (this is optional, at least for me)

what about FW_ROUTE="yes" ?

I think you have to put ipsec0 here to EXT as well !

FW_DEV_INT="eth0 ipsec0"

should be "yes"

You know that there is a problem to ping the vpn-gateway machine itself ?
there is a trick (documented in a c't magazin article some days ago) to implement
iptables rules to route this icmp messages as well to simply "test the connection".
