I have established a VPN with a Linksys BEFSX41 ver2 and a Juniper box. The Linksys is on a 10.x.x.x subnet and the Juniper is on a 172.16.x.x subnet. Basically, I can ping a computer from the Linksys side to the Juniper side, but not the other way.

ping 172.16.10.x - DOES WORK
ping 10.10.10.x - DOES NOT WORK

The VPN is setup with the appropriate Local/remote addresses and setting to create the VPN. Both devices show the VPN as connected.

I can confirm that traffic is being set from both VPN boxes from the logs. The Juniper shows the type of traffic and the number of bytes sent to the VPN tunnel. The Linksys does not show any incoming traffic on the tunnel. Obviously, the tunnel is established, otherwise I would not be able to ping anything. All firewall options on the Linksys are turned off. Do I need to add a static route?
