Knowing full well you're no GNU/Linux newbie anymore, and since you persist in posting threads with little or no information about whatever you've read about or tried I'd say "go search LQ".

I did a search.

I will rephase my question so its not as general.

I am connecting to a server, and then said I needed to use ipsec, and didn't give any other info.

If I encrypt my ip traffic, how are they able to decode? Do I need to get a key from them? Or do I need to give them my public key?

Well, you should ask them then. What protocol they support and what client you can (or are forced to) use like SSL (OpenVPN), PPTP (PPTP Client)or IPSEC (racoon or Cisco VPN client), if you need a clientside cert or if they allow (group) login/password logins, basically the stuff you need to successfully get into their VPN.

Because how the tunnel is set up and established is agreed to by both parties. Could read one or two generic IPSEC setup docs?..
