I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean. So I will move on to
the configuration and the error messages.

Although this is the most recent version on the website, it is actually
an old version. I have accumulated some extra patches which are available
on my homepage. A (probably even better) alternative is the version used
by Debian: http://packages.debian.org/unstable/net/l2tpd.html

When you use NAT it is better to use certificates.

When you use NAT this should be 17/1701.

The send port is not 500. So something or somebody is doing NAT. But your
configuration does not support it.
