Why do you put the iptables rules in the cipe script? You have to create
a cipe chain in the firewall script; with fas GUI is very simple: go to
IP-Filter and NAT menu, choose Expert Configuration and New Chain in IP
Filter Menu, add your rules there.
For example you could create 2 chains: one that accepts the key from
your peer and another that forwards the traffic between the 2 lans
trough the cipe interface; the first will be added in the INPUT chain
and the second in the FORWARD chain.
Don't forget to start cipe deamon by hand on the floppy in

Anyway I suggest you to join the suse-fwoncd list:
