Hi people,

I'm trying configure the openswan with l2tp for connect windows clients, i try configure using the howto http://www.natecarlson.com/linux/ipsec-l2tp.php, but when run the command 'ipsec verify', it return FAILED in checking RSA key. Somebody knows because?

Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
Version check and ipsec on-path                                   [OK]
Linux Openswan 2.1.5 (klips)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel                              [OK]
Checking for RSA private key (/etc/ipsec.secrets)             [FAILED]
ipsec showhostkey: no default key in "/etc/ipsec.secrets"
Checking that pluto is running                                    [OK]
Two or more interfaces found, checking IP forwarding              [OK]
Checking NAT and MASQUERADEing                                   [N/A]
Checking for 'ip' command                                         [OK]
Checking for 'iptables' command                                   [OK]

Opportunistic Encryption DNS checks:
    Looking for TXT in forward dns zone: VPN-GW-DBBAU         [MISSING]
    Does the machine have at least one non-private address?    [FAILED]

My /etc/ipsec.secrets:

: RSA darkstar.key "123456"

In tutorial it not say as to run the l2tpd, I need to pass some parameter?
Or only the command 'l2tpd' is necessary ?

If I ignone the erros and trying the connect the connect windows client, the windows show only "Connecting" infinity.
