FC2 uses the 2.6 kernel, and has the new NAT-t stuff in the kernel.

We are still working on changing our buildfarm to generate openswan rpms, just
like we did with the freeswan rpms in the past. But you can always grab the
source and try 'make rpm' (for openswan-2) to build packages. Note that you
will need to apply the nat-t patch seperately; we can't patch it automaticly
because we currently do not detect whether some nat-t patch has already been
applied to the kernel.

Lots of things on the todo list.

Perhaps see you at CeBIT,
