18.104.22.168.1. Host-to-Host Connection - no IPsec tab found

When I type system-config-network, this is what I see
Description of problem:
In section 22.214.171.124.1. Host-to-Host Connection
The first few steps don't seem to work:
1) In a command shell, type system-config-network to start the Network Administration Tool.
2) On the IPsec tab, click New to start the IPsec configuration wizard.
I don't see any IPsec tab.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@hoho6 user1]# uname -a
Linux hoho6.chidig.com 3.11.6-200.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Oct 18 22:34:18 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I did a yum update a few minutes ago.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a terminal session, log in as root
2. type 'system-config-network'
3. look for IPsec tab.
Could not find IPsec tab
Found IPsec tab
It looks like the functionality of system-config-network is now done by the NetworkManager (since Fedora 16?)
In documentation 5.1. The NetworkManager Daemon
The command service NetworkManager start
is now done by a systemd friendly process:
[root@hoho6 user1]# service NetworkManager start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start NetworkManager.service
I'm continuing along this path..
Following the instructions in the documentation, I finally rest at this point:
[user1@hoho6 ~]$ nm-applet &
[user1@hoho6 ~]$ ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area
** Message: Stopping registered applet secret agent because GNOME Shell is running
It is a little confusing.
Sorry for the delay (and the incorrect information). The Security Guide is undergoing an audit and we're finding a lot of old instructions. The IPSec instructions fall into that "old information". We've already rewritten portions of the VPN section. Hope to get this out in time for Fedora 21.
