I think I would first disable iptables to get it out of 
the mix - as root:

 	/sbin/service iptables stop && /sbin/service iptables save
 	/sbin/chkconfig iptables off

and then want to see the ip assignments and routes when you 
think you have it runningL

 	netstat -rn

on the Linux side, and a statement of what the remote IP and 
destination subnet and mask are.

Then, remember that tcpdump is a good friend -- some 
techinques for use are toward the top of:


in a mail context, but there is an ICMP example in there as 
well which will help.
