Hi Gerd,

My networks are a combination of private and public and they work well, 
so I don't think that should be a problem.  A lot of VPNs to connect to 
private networks, since there's no way to access private networks 
directly over the Internet, so there's no way that doesn't work, we'd 
have definitely heard about it here! :)

Have you examined trace logs to see what happens differently with the 
policy negotiation and security association establishment when you've 
got policies manually set as compared to using Obtain Automatically?
