Thanks Peter, I already have a succesful VPN connection with Linux OpenSWAN
& Linksys BEFSX41 router using the configuration you listed below, linksys
has similar settings.  However, I'm not sure if its okey with you guys to
ask the question how can I route the trafic in Linux, I was testing with
routes and iptables but im not that good with Linux routing.
