I'm sorry to hear that. Personally I haven't tried it with OpenL2TP.
Are you running it on an embedded device, perhaps?

Does it work without NAT? If you use a PSK instead of certificates?

I must say that the Windows Mobile 'Connection Manager' is a bit finicky.
Not to mention Windows Mobile based smartphones, which I could not get to
connect at all. On top of that they are locked too. They're a bit like
the  Apple iPhone, minus the jail break community.

The usual configuration for L2TP/IPsec should work. Could you post your
config files and logs?
