I'm attempting to ping your NAT'd IP address and this is unreachable on our end. Please be sure that your security device allows traffic initiated from e-MDs as well.

Your VPN is setup so that any client in the network will be natted to when they try to connect to either or

But for them to be able to initiate a connection to you you need to statically map an ip address. So what remote IP are they trying to ping. If they are trying to ping and the tunnel is not up then your firewall has no way of knowing which 192.168.0.x address the address is meant to NAT to.

Hopefully this makes sense. What IP address are they trying to get to ie. what internal server do they want to access 192.168.0.??
