KLIPS it is then.

I'm using FC4 - I've followed the instructions as per


"Then simply run yum update and yum install openswan. If you want to use 
KLIPS instead of NETKEY, also run: yum install openswan-klips"

An ipsec verify:

Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
Version check and ipsec on-path                                 [OK]
Linux Openswan U2.4.0/K2.6.12-1.1456_FC4smp (netkey)
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
Checking for 'ip' command                                       [OK]
Checking for 'iptables' command                                 [OK]
Checking for 'setkey' command for NETKEY IPsec stack support    [OK]
Opportunistic Encryption Support                                [DISABLED]

Still shows NETKEY as the method - how do I force it to use KLIPS?
