Steve, indentation is correct... I retyped it almost a hundred
times... :-( ... It does not accept anything that looks like "ike="...
Obs: please remember that I tried every possible combination of aes,
aes128, aes256, sha, sha1, modp1024 in "ike="... Whenever I insert a
line containing "ike=" it does not parse this connection.
In fact, my version its not trying even AES128 in negotiation. Only 3DES.
If I downgrade to an earlier OpenSwan version, do you guys think that
would work? Do you recommend any specific version?
Otherwise, is there another free VPN software that could be installed
to make such a connection?
