Lightbulb OpenSwan ipsec - conf,check -I need help

Hi ,
i want to create Lan IPsec connection between two hosts, like this

|HOST A|------IPsec----|HOST B|
\_____________ ____________/
\ /

Host A ip : (SuseLinuxEnt + OpenSwan)
Host B ip : (SuseLinuxEnt + OpenSwan)
mask :

How to configure OpenSwan to work in LAN ? (ipsec.conf,ipsec.secrets)
How to initialize connection(The New Tunnel) ?
How to check encryption of connection ? Does Connection realy work ? How to test The New Tunnel ?
Below is what my "ipsec verify" return

Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly
Version check and ipsec on-path [OK]
Linux Openswan U2.2.0/K2.6.8-1.521 (native)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel [OK]
Checking for RSA private key (/etc/ipsec.secrets) [OK]
Checking that pluto is running [OK]
Two or more interfaces found, checking IP forwarding [OK]
Checking NAT and MASQUERADEing [N/A]<----what's mean N/A
Checking for 'ip' command [OK]
Checking for 'iptables' command [OK]
Checking for 'setkey' command for native IPsec stack support [OK]

How to change "Checking NAT and MASQUERADEing [N/A]" to "[OK]" ?
