Hi there,

Been having a small but annoying problem.

Remote users seem to be able to connect/disconnect fine.

However, if the connection is left idle it appears to automatically

(isakmp) from the VPN server to the client although the client has 

I'm using Fedora Core 4 (2.6.14-1.1656_FC4), Netkey and Openswan U2.4.4.

with the kernel shipped with Fedora and  I should use a vanilla kernel?

Is there a preferred version of the 2.6 kernel for use with Openswan?
