I managed to get the link past the 'policy' stage but it tells me it fails the 'verifying network' test. My remote net is 192.168.15.X and the local net is 192.168.16.X Remote host is XP SP3. QuickVPN is 188.8.131.52 and the router was recently updated
SA520 IPSec log shows

Any suggestions on directions from here - what to do, where to get smarter on the process,....?
When upgrading from version 1.0.15, 1.0.17, or 1.0.39, to 1.1.42 the firmware will reset the router to its factory default and you will need to back up the configuration.
When upgrading from 1.1.21, these steps are not required.
CAUTION Do not try swap images if a secondary firmware image is not present. Doing so can cause the to router to not boot up. To upgrade the SA 500 follow these steps.
STEP 1 Back up the existing configuration using the SA 500 Configuration Utility. If you need to revert to the previous firmware version, this allows you to restore the configuration associated with the prior version. To access the configuration back-up options, click Administration on the menu bar, then click Firmware & Configuration > Network in the navigation tree.
Follow the instructions in the Cisco SA 500 Series Security Appliances Administration Guide to back up the configuration.
STEP 2 Write down or take screenshots of your existing configuration settings. After upgrading to firmware version SA500-K9-1.1.42, you must manually re-enter these settings by using the SA 500 Configuration Utility.
This is necessary because the SA 500 is reset to factory defaults as part of the upgrade process and the previous configuration back-up file format is
incompatible with the format required for firmware version SA500-K9-1.1.42.
STEP 3 Perform the upgrade by using the Configuration Utility. To access the upgrade options, see the Upgrade Firmware section of the Getting Started (Basic) page of the Configuration Utility.
STEP 4 Manually re-enter the configuration settings you recorded in Step 2.
STEP 5 Verify that the installation is working properly.;
