Why do you need freeswan if you are trying to set up L2TP tunnels from
the Windows box to your Linux box ?. FreeS/WAN is an implementation of
the IPsec protocol suite, and as far as I know WXP has support by
default for it, so maybe you could have better luck with this standard
protocol than with the less one L2TP.

I could be way mistaken, but L2TP and IPsec (FreeS/WAN and others) are
completely different and independent tunneling mechanisms, and so there
is no mix between them. Configure just L2TP XOR IPsec.
