Well there's support for IPSEC from the ipsec and openswan packages. I
tried miserably to get it working the other day and couldn't. There
seems to be a conflict when connecting between the two packages and I
couldn't work out whether they were suppose to work together or you
chose one or the other. There's a IPSEC tab in the network config gui
which creates an ifcfg-Blah script and so on.

Is there documentation any where? I couldn't even find a post to a
list outlining it. It'd be nice to have a example for something like a
RoadWarrior connecting in. I believe it should work with the standard
W2K/XP IPSEC client. There's also a newer rc of the ipsec package on
their site which is suppose to be quite stable and have lots of extra
feature. Possible inclusion for the test release?
