I've got some news.

It sems to me that's not a a problem with the linux side. Ive used ethereal 
at ipsec0, straced pppd proccess and increased debug of openswan and pppd 
and there ins't a single error in it. Just a request to disconnect from the 
windows mobile side. And since I can't find a way to debug information from 
windows mobile, It's quite a dead end.

As Paul mentioned, looks like a problem with l2tp/ipsec stack from windows 
mobile 5.0. It won't work, no matter what I do. If anyone has ANY 
sugestions, I'll take it. At this point, I'm really out of options fot it.

So I went another way. I'm currently trying some ipsec clients for windows 
mobile, and the only one I found so far that could work is NCP Secure Entry 
CE. As a matter fact, I've downloaded (trial) and configured sucessfully to 
interopt with openswan. I can ping the other site and open an http from 
within the remote network. Looks good.

What I meant to ask is if there is any free ipsec client, such as 
lsipsectool, for windows mobile. NCP Secure Entry CE is a bit expensive. If 
there isn't, someone might consider developing one. Mobile platform it's 
here to stay.
