for example, I have 2 ip address, and I need staff and manager use different
ip address.

Staff could use only ip1, and manager could only use ip2, and it's different
tunnel...The two ip addresses are binded to one machine. So I think I need
to start 2 openswan instances and two xl2tpd instances to severs this?
