I have tried your advice in my testVPN server which has static ip
I have replace the static ip with %defaultroute in my ipsec.con and
and restart the l2tpd and ipsec services, my OS is FC4
but I cannot use the windows XP VPN client to connect the server
which I can when I use the static ip in ipsec.* files
what the mistake that I have?Thanks
