openswan-variable size of key


Hi, all

In manual keying scenario, I can type hexa number into the manual conf file.
However, there are some problem I face into. I want to enter auth/enc key for ESP in the one of linux box, which I copied from my switch's hard codes. However, there are only three specified options available according to the ipsec of linux. e.g. 3des | 3des-md5-96(192 bit, 128 bit) | 3des-sha1-96(192 bit, 160 bit). Is it possible to use varied length of bits for each key since some of algorithm in the switch has large bits like (192 bit, 384 bit)?
