Help with client-to-gateway VPN connection for NETGEAR DG834

By bavial ·
Hi, I have a NETGEAR DG834 ADSL Router and want to setup simple VPN connection from my laptop (which has a Telstra nextG card in it) to the office network.

So, I run the VPN Wizard on the router
- enter a connection name
- enter a pre-shared key
-and select VPN Tunnel will connect to a remote VPN Client (single PC).

I then use the NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Client on my laptop and create a new connection. The only changes I make to the default settings are:

'Remote Party Identity and Addressing'
- set IP address to WAN ip of my router

'My Identity'
- set certificate type to 'none' and enter a pre-shared key to match that on the router.

Now when I go to connect I get the following log on the router:
Thu, 2007-06-28 15:21:08 - [mytest] STATE_MAIN_R2: retransmission; will wait 40s for response
Thu, 2007-06-28 15:21:23 - [mytest] responding to Main Mode from unknown peer 58.171.71.115

Thu, 2007-06-28 15:21:49 - adding interface ipsec0/ppp0 219.215.0.130

and the log on the prosafe client is:
