[Openswan Users] L2TP/PPP authentication

Hi, folks,

I'm trying to configure a IPSec/L2TP linux client, but I'm facing some 
little troubles.

Basically, the IPSec tunnel is stablished successfully, but the L2TP/PPP 
authentication fails.

The first problem is that, looking at /var/log/messages in my VPN Server, it 
says that the user is my client's hostname and not a real user that I want.

Then, I configure my options.l2tpd file on the VPN Server to not perform 
authentication (noauth). Then, the ppp0 appears on both sides, but the 
server can't determine the Ethernet address of my client with the "proxyarp" 

Anybody could help me, please?
