Description of problem:
The current RHEL 4 beta and rawhide ship with ipsec-tools 0.2.5.

This is the same old release as in RHEL3. In the meantime, the
ipsec-tools project (http://ipsec-tools.sourceforge.net) has released
version 0.3, which has stabilised and is currently at 0.3.3.

This version supports one new feature that would have a large value
for corporate environments: support for the NAT-T (NAT traversal)
extension to the IPSec which allows the communication IPSec endpoints
to discover NAT sitting between them and encapsulate IPSec packets in
UDP packets sent through the IKE port (See
http://www.mpirical.com/companion/mpirical_companion.html#http://www.mpirical.com/companion/IP/NAT-T_-_NAT-Traversal.htm
and http://www.sans.org/rr/papers/20/731.pdf).

I vote for upgrading ipsec-tools to version 0.3 for RHEL4.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ipsec-tools-0.2.5-6

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
none
