OpenSwan Server FC6 with XP client
Ive been trying to configure FC6 with openswan for the past few days and to no avail. I was hoping someone can help answer my problem. Im running windows XP and I want to create an IPsec tunnel to the linux server. I wanted to set it up using a roadwarrior (the XP machine) and using PSKs (i know they are unsecure). My linux server is running 2 NIC cards one connected to the net ( and the other to an internal network ( The internal network is The XP machine is on the subnet using the address Im setting this up to demonstrate the encryption method of IPsec so i just need to create the tunnel into the subnet. Below are some of my config files:

/etc/ipsec.secrets PSK "pleasework"


conn road


version 2.0
config setup
include /etc/ipsec.d/*.conf

In addition i also get the following errors when i start up ipsec.

FATAL: ERROR inserting padlock (/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6/kernel/drivers/crypto/padlock.ko): No such device

Pretty much when I use the XP machine to connect, i get a [I]no message authorized[I] in my secure logs on the linux box and windows says it cannot connect [I]Error 789: The L2TP connection attempt failed because the security layer encountered a processing error during the initial negotiation....[I]

Help is greatly appreciated
