Could you try with rightprotoport=17/1701? For some reason the
combination of the three lines above results in L2TP packets
being sent in the clear (Paul?).

Unfortunately this change means that MacOS X clients are excluded.
Do you use Macs?

By the way, this won't work with Windows and Mac clients because
they don't support Dead Peer Detection. It will be ignored but if
you also have Linux L2TP/IPsec clients it could be of use.
