As far as I understand the situation now the backported IPSEC stack from
kernel-2.6 is very different from FreeS/WANs KLIPS, i.e. there are no
ipsec* network interfaces. So using the backported kernel code instead
of KLIPS will break all current installations (updown scripts, firewall
scripts, ...) So it would be a lot better to get KLIPS running on the
RHES3 kernels.

If you have something to test, please let me know.

Best regards.
