Will RHEL6 and openswan be able to inter-operate with RHEL5 and ipsec-tools?

Yes. Openswan follows standard IPsec RFCs, and so does ipsec-tools as I believe.
> IE, racoon and openswan+netkey work together?
Not very clear what you mean here. But Openswan does not work with racoon on the same machine. But as I said above, ipsec-tools + racoon on one end and Openswan+NETKEY on other end should be able to interoperate.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
