Racoon connect to VPN with Pre shared key and Xauth - need some help


I am trying to connect to a Netscreen VPN box with Racoon. My ipsec-tools is at ver 0.6.6

If there is only a pre-shared key for authentication, I can connect without a problem. However I need to have psk and xauth together, and I cannot change that scenarrio.

With only psk, in the racoon.conf I have this:

authentication_method pre_shared_key;
What do I need instead of that when needing psk and xauth thereafter?

I found some pages referring to something like this:

But I am unsure if that is what I need, and also I dont have this as an option in my racoon.conf when I check the man page.

Any help is appreciated,
