But you might not be excluding all NAT ranges you are trying to tunnel?

--> I don't think so, but I will try to figure it out with the
shorewall users list.

Debian/ubuntu needs to learn not to ship ancient versions. I suggest you
upgrade to 2.4.14.

--> I downloaded the 2.6.21 version...

Fix those. grab a recent openswan-2.6.x release and check
to see the entries you need to have.

--> OK, but I encountered this errors while compiling...

#make programs install

--> I find out that I need to install gmp development package. I
installed, but I'm still getting the same error...
