[Openvpn-users] OpenVPN, OpenBSD and Smoothwall...<sigh>

	Has anyone successfully configured an OpenVPN deployment on an
OpenBSD machine with a Smoothwall firewall between the remote peers and the
OpenBSD machine (peer) behind the firewall?
	I'm currently attempting such a setup but I'm getting nowhere fast.
	The OpenBSD machine and the remote peers connect (the log file shows
the successful negotiation) but then after that, remote peers are unable to
anything on the network (pings fail, unable to browse the network). After a
time, the OpenBSD peer resets the connection due to inactivity (with
UPD...TCP maintains the connection until the remote peer disconnects).
	I suspect that this is a routing issue (or a NAT configuration
problem, since I tried that also, with the same results) but updating all I
could think of (routing on the Smoothwall, routing on the OpenBSD machine)
made no difference.
	I'm using this guide for general OpenBSD/OpenVPN:
	And this guide for OpenBSD NAT:

Where should I begin looking in terms of sorting this out?
