That above openswan-klips rpm, unless you built it yourself, does not contain
support for nat-t in KLIPS, since it was meant for the 'stock' fedora kernel,
which you have patched to add nat-t support.

Please dowload openswan-2.4.0-1.src.rpm from the openswan ftp/www site. Then
do the following:

rpm -hiv openswan-2.4.0-1.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
tar zxvf openswan-2.4.0.tar.gz
cd openswan-2.4.0/packaging/redhat/

edit the config-* files and change



then rebuild:

rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/openswan.spec --define 'buildklips 1' --define 'kversion 2.6.x'
(where 2.6.x is the exact version of the newly build kernel with nat-t that
you made)

That should give you a new openswan-klips package you can install that
should have support for nat-t. It will also give you a new openswan package
that matches the openswan-klips package. Install both using "rpm -Uhv"
