Hallo Keith!

Thanks for your reply! It pushed me another step near the goal :)

Ok thats already set, just the forward-policy is DENY, but that sould not 
make any difference concerning the VPN(?).

Ok, but a
ipchains -I forward 1 -b -s -d -j ACCEPT
would do the same concerning my two networks?

When I do that the ping is getting through.... And when I do this
ipchains -A forward -b -s -d -j MASQ # router B
ist still gets through.

But when I cut out the -b here, it is not working (though I can still use the 
Internet with a Host behind the router).  Why is that?
Can anyone explain why I need to make masquerading bidirectional? I works 
fine without as long as Router A doesn't try to ping Host

Yes this is set, since both cipe-machines are the routers at the same time.

Well, they look like
route add -net gw # gw is IP of cipe-interface
route add -net gw # gw is IP of cipe-interface
Does that make any difference?

I think it is a firewall rule... since I can make it work and not work when I 
play around with the firewall.
