Hi all,

Currently I am working on some project of securing linux networking in which I found IPSEC VPN a secured method for establishing a secured connection over unsecured internet network. This secure connection may be between two offices of the same organization at remote places who want to share their data using a secure connection over the internet.

I have tried to search a lot and found many data online still I am not able to configure IPSEC VPN using freeswan. Has any body tried this ? I am also aware of other methods of secure tunneling like ssl vpn - open vpn and other implementations of the same kind.

I wanted to use IPSEC VPN only !!!

I am initially making the connection between two local hosts using a cross cable which connects the ethernet cards of both the pcs. On this I would like to first of all establish the secure connection.

Is there anybody out who can guide me regarding to this ? I have googled a lot on this so I want help of a guy who has practically implemented it.

I have also searched previous threads but not found any satisfactory answers !!!
May be somewhere wrong in asking the question please don't mind.


Thanx in advance

What has your barrier to success been? Where are you getting stumped? When I did it, the FreeS/WAN documentation was easy as pie to follow.
