BEFSX41 VPN router & SSH-Sentinel, can't ping past router

BEFSX41 VPN router & SSH-Sentinel, can't ping past router

BEFSX41 VPN router & SSH-Sentinel, can't ping past router

This is my first time setting up a linksys BEFSX41 with SSH-sentinel.  I consider myself to be a beginner when It comes to vpns, but I do have a little experience with them.  

I have been able to establish a vpn connection between the SSH-Sentinel client (v1.3.2.2) and Linksys BEFSX41 running firmware version 1.52.10, which is the latest as far as I know.  I followed the directions issued by SSH that I found on this forum. I can successful ping the BEFSX41 on the remote end with no problems, but I can't seem to reach anything past that point.  My first thought is that I am having routing issues, but I can ping the linksys so I think there is traffic being routed through the tunnel.  I can also get to the linksys web based configuration through the vpn.  My ultimate goal is to use RDP through the vpn tunnel to a PC located behind the links router.

I'm not sure where to go from here to get this working. Here is all the information that i can think of that might be relavent.  If there's anything more information i can offer i will gladly give it, just let me know what it is.  Thanks.

On the VPN Endpoint side I have:
Nuvox T1 Static IP 66.XX.XX.XX
VPN Settings
Local Secure Group IP Mask
Remote Secure Group :Any
Remote Security Gateway: any
Encryption 3DES
Authentication MD5
Auto IKE.

Under advanced Settings:
Main mode

Proposal 1

Proposal 2

On the remote client end
Comcast cable

Thanks for your help in advance.

Have you tried a traceroute to verify what path you are taking when pinging to an address beyond the endpoint? Seems to me it would be a routing issue also.
