All things considered, OpenSwan is today the best tool.

May i ask which mode should i use to implement IPsec in my IPv6 mail server?Tunnel or transport mode?
My diagram is have one mail server in fedora core 4 then connect to few client PC.OS for client PC is window and Fedora.
What i understand is Transport is between host to host and Tunnel is between two different network.
So my case is host to host or two network?
Thanks a lot

May I ask should I compile my Kernel to support the IPsec.My Kernel version is 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.I use linux fedora core 4.Can I use the GUI network interface to create the IPsec connection?
I now use the IPsec-tools to configure the IPsec.
