The ideal approach from a maintenance perspective, would be to use the
stock/in-kernel IPSec code with the Openswan userland. That seems to be
the plan for Openswan v2.10 due out within 3 months.


The only question I have is if the in-kernel IPSec code has the
ESP-over-UDP support needed for NAT-T. Herbert/Dave can answer this.

While waiting for Openswan v2.10 I've resigned myself to using/building
a RHELv3 kernel plus Openswan v1.0.0. I plan on doing that today if I
get the time. I suspect I'll need to pull out the in kernel IPSec and
maybe USAGI (if it's in there). I want it fully RPM packaged for
maintenance reasons.
