Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello,i've been banging my heads against this issue for several days and i cannot get my L2TP VPN server working on a CENTOS VPS. i tried various tutorials but the problem remains the same. i can establish a l2tp connection (without ipsec encryption) with the VPN server from my Android phone and win8 desktop. but if i try to access the internet via the vpn server, the connection is terminated. also, i can not establish a l2tp connection using ipsec shared secrets.tcpdump -i eth0 -p 500 output the followings details:

i use the combination of strongswan and xl2tp.here is my config
; This is a minimal sample xl2tpd configuration file for use
; with L2TP over IPsec.
; The idea is to provide an L2TP daemon to which remote Windows L2TP/IPsec
; clients connect. In this example, the internal (protected) network
; is 192.168.1.0/24. A special IP range within this network is reserved
; for the remote clients: 192.168.1.128/25
; (i.e. 192.168.1.128 ... 192.168.1.254)
; The listen-addr parameter can be used if you want to bind the L2TP daemon
; to a specific IP address instead of to all interfaces. For instance,
; you could bind it to the interface of the internal LAN (e.g. 192.168.1.98
; in the example below). Yet another IP address (local ip, e.g. 192.168.1.99)
; will be used by xl2tpd as its address on pppX interfaces.
; IMPORTANT: always set listen-addr to a specific address, to work around a
; udpfromto bug!!!
listen-addr = x.x.x.x
; requires openswan-2.5.18 or higher - Also does not yet work in combination
; with kernel mode l2tp as present in linux 2.6.23+
; ipsec saref = yes
; Use refinfo of 22 if using an SAref kernel patch based on openswan 2.6.35 or
; when using any of the SAref kernel patches for kernels up to 2.6.35.
; ipsec refinfo = 30
force userspace = yes
debug tunnel = yes
ip range = 192.168.122.128-192.168.122.254
local ip = 192.168.122.99
; leave chap unspecified for maximum compatibility with windows, iOS, etc
; require chap = yes
refuse pap = yes
require authentication = yes
name = LinuxVPNserver
ppp debug = yes
pppoptfile = /etc/ppp/options.xl2tpd
length bit = yes
