And unfortunately you failed to provide critical evidence - in this case 
the actual logs (and the tcpdump since you already have it) of a failed 
session, rather than your interpretation of it. But at least you 
provided your config (Timo is so good that often that is enough by 
itself, but even his crystal ball sometimes has problems).

I have found over the years that if you are having a problem to the 
point that you need to ask for help, it is time to step back and take a 
fresh look at *everything* - including having other eyes looking at 
*all* of the evidence.


Best regards,
