Sorry, tried to send it in HTML and stop the lines from wrapping to make
it *easier* to read. Guess that didn't work, eh?

Yep, that fixed it. Thank you very much.
l2tpd and pppd up and running as well (yeah, thanks for that MS)
Presto, VPN.

Can anybody recommend a good book on IPSec/Openswan? There are good how
to guides out there but I can't find any good reference documentation.
Such as WHY I need that "right=%any" in my config file.
