I have a host I am trying to setup for ipsec. But I am finding some errors in the log that don't make much sense to me.

The system are Rhel 5.5 boxes. I followed RHEL's IPSec deployment directions to setup a host to host IPSec connection between hosts on two different LAN's. One host has a bonded interface. After running tcpdump I don't see any traffic going to the second host.

I restarted networking services and saw this:

Its traversing a NAT at one point.
