I don't have an answer for you but would appreciate if you post the
answer once it is resolved. I have gone through your setup but am not
able to point out the problem (both the config and iptables looks just
about right to me). The only thing I can point out is that in a setup
I'd created recently, the client machine wouldn't establish the VPN link
until I opened the GRE port (47) too on the firewall. Post which it was
a breeze. Not sure if that's playing a role in your case though.
