I want to start the most basic connection there is to test if ipsec is
running etc..

I would like to establish a connection with a simple preshared key,
so I would have to use manual keying, right?

Maybe there are some basic examples on the net for the following config:

Win2k at establishing a VPN Connection to Suse 9.1 on with a Presharedkey. 

Oh btw, please don't think I am using this mailinglist as simple shortcut,... I read tons of howtos, googled for hours on end, but I don't seem to find what I need. Most examples are for older versions, or x.509, or with thousands of hops in between etc..

Thanks for your help!!!
