[Openswan Users] LAN Configuration Help

	I need to setup OpenSwan to FORCE all connections in/out of each machine on the LAN to go through a secure connection (ESP).   Now I was able to modify the conf and secrets file that allow a point-to-point between 2 specific machines, but I wanted to generalize the settings so that ALL incoming and outgoing data across the LAN is encrypted.   The idea is to copy/paste the configuration and secrets file to each machine and not have to customize the files on each machine  (especially when dhcp may change IP addresses) 

So the question is how do I setup the secrets file?   I know I can use %any on one end (right), but what about my local side (left)?
Example: %any: "mysupersecret"      Becomes?

And here is what I thought would work for the configuration...but no luck.

conn allInOut

Is there a way to make this work?

Thanks All,
