do you have as documentation or a link to this ???
Check the freeswan project at http://www.freeswan.org
There are debian packages for freeswan in woody, and work great, a
kernel patch is needed for 2.4.x. In 2.6.x ipsec support is built-in and
you don't need freeswan, but last time I checked, there was not much
documentation on ipsec over linux 2.6.
Ipsec in the windows world is a bit harder to get working, but is
possible, the easier way I hear is with pptp, which linux supports,
although it is regarded as a worse solution, security-wise.
There was info on how to get a win2k box talk ipsec here:
http://jixen.tripod.com/win2k-screen.html but it appears it's no longer
there, I made a copy of the site, which included screenshots and a
straightforward description of the trick, if you need it, I can put it
somewhere for download.
please reply to the list
