I do not know how you "configured ipsec on windows 2000". Do you mean
do you mean some static conn via mmc? do you mean with lsipsectool.exe?

In windows 2000 I gave the secpol.msc in the run and then I followed the
steps of creating a IP filter and then gave the destination and source
IP in the respective fields . I also had a parameter called tunnel end
point ,I don know exactly what it does ?? Please can u tell what IP
should I give there and what does it actually do ???

I have given pfs=no in my ipsec.conf file . So for establishment of
connection I need to get a certificate on both the linux and windows
machines ??? Is it compulsory like otherwise the connection will not
happen ??

Thanks and Regards
