[Openswan Users] Tunnel between router and web server running openswan

I am new to openswan and need advice on how to proceed.
I have a Vigor 2900 router (with static IP) that connects my office's
LAN to the Internet.
I have a dedicated web server hosted by my ISP (running Fedora Core 4
with Openswan 2.4.4-1.0FC4.1 and a static IP)
What I would like is to create a VPN tunnel between the Vigor router and
the Fedora box, so that I can transfer files to the web server without
having to rely on FTP, sshfs or similar (lots of problems with ssh
connections dropping out).
I spent some time Googling the problem and worked through the examples
that I can find. However I have not been able to work out how to
configure the connection. Given that there is no LAN behind the web
server I am stumped as to how I should proceed.
Any advice or pointers to documentation would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
