Description Kaj J. Niemi 2004-02-20 12:01:54 EST
Description of problem:
Consider upgrading ipsec-tools to 0.2.4 (rawhide has 0.2.2). There's
been a lot of activity on it in January and it would be kind of
beneficial for FC2 if it shipped with the newer version :)

Woops. Just discovered 80 unread messages in ipsec-tools-devel. Will
look at this this week or next.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-02-23 17:29:37 EST
Note that there's also the consideration of shipping openswan.

This is just IMHO and applies to all vpn software on linux.

From a business/road warrior perspective the clients are of low use
unless they support NAT (Port) Traversal, DPD, integration with one's
IGP, authentication from somewhere else than racoon.conf. IPSec over
udp or tcp would be a nice to have as well. There was a set of patches
to Free/SWAN attempting to nat traversal, afaik. 

I've preferred KAME over Free/SWAN for server to server connections
where there is no NATting between and no ACLs filtering out isakmp/udp
and protocols ESP/AH. It works great on FreeBSD and works pretty nice
on Linux, too.

The Cisco VPN Client is a nice example of a working VPN client. It
doesn't come with full source nor is it free (licenses are usually
included with the VPN Concentrator, the PIX or IOS Easy VPN) but it
really does work everywhere. Someone ought to kick them to make the
client work again with kernel 2.6.2 and up.

Getting back to the topic.. Is CIPE going to stay, too?

Openswan had DPD in their roadmap along with NAT-T, I vote go for it ;-)

I'll go ahead and close this as 0.2.4 is in rawhide. Thanks.
