Question Freeswan PGPNET

I just set up FREESWAN and am wondering how I could have a Windows client connect through it? All the articles that I am reading point to PGPnet client. I cannot find that client anywhere. Basically I am looking for that client or any other that is recommended and will work going from windows to the linux freeswan vpn. Thanks in advance.

I hope you applied the x509 patch to FreeSWAN, will make life a lot easier for you later down the track...

For win connectivity


For certificate creation etc you will have to edit your openssl.cnf file for each certificate you create for each user and add the SubjectAltName as their email address.

Good luck you're gonna be having some fun

If it all gets too much you may want to consider OpenBSD w oakley/isakmpd, a much nicer implementation of IPsec...
