I have no idea what you mean? IPsec comes in various modes, the most
obvious two being Transport Mode and Tunnel Mode. VPN's use Tunnel Mode,
while L2TP/IPsec uses Transport Mode. Perhaps you are referring to this?
Openswan supports both.
If you are referring to non-ipsec connections, you would mean PPTP, which
is implemented in different software on linux, called pptp-linux.
