OK SOLVED!! YAY. The issue which i read here:
is that openswan no longer supports DES, needs 3DES. Its what i
initially tried to use with Windows 2000, but event log reported an
informational error from Oakley which started with: this ip security
policy for isakmp/oakley specified an encryption algorithm that is
invalid due to export cryptography restrictions. And it went on to say
that DES will be used instead of 3DES. Now my server 2000 has no
service packs installed, and i have no internet access to get them.

So i got a vm of Windows Server 2003 up and running, did the same
settings and it established fine.

Thanks for input on helping me figure this out.
