are you sure that pinging client <-> client works even w/o the isakmpd
stuff running? you mentioned that the clients were windows xp
machines...

it sounds like it is working ok...if i recall, with that type of setup,
client to client ping should work (except you have xp machines and grief
only knows what should work with them), but gateway <-> gateway pings on
the type of setup described in vpn(8) will *not* work. something to do
with the way the networks see each other. look at your routing tables to
see why.
