Ok. The routers don't seem to even be connecting to each other. So they
don't even get the chance to fail at the authentication step.

I would guess this is because the gethostbyname/inet_ntoa/etc incants I
use expect a network where names resolve correctly. If your machines have
any doubt what their IP or hostname is, or if dns resolution disagrees,
then things could break.

I'll try to come up with some patches to make it clearer what's going
on so you can pinpoint the problem. In the meantime, have you tried
running it on a more normal network? (That is, have you ever gotten it
working? If not, you should try on a more normal network first.)
