problem with VPN
I'm trying to connect to a L2TP VPN account in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
I installed "l2tp-ipsec-vpn" But couldn't connect so I added Openswan's PPA and upgraded to 2.6.37 but still I can't connect!
VPN account itself has no problem; Windows 7 connects to it without any problem!
l2tp-ipsec-vpn's log is:

How can I fix it?

Re-visit your Ipsec configuration.

Hi Thanks
But I didn't changed any configurations!
I only installed "l2tp-ipsec-vpn" and "Openswan" and tried to connect!
Can you explain more?
