Title: RE: [SLUG] freeswan

I am starting to (after 3 weeks) have some success with the June 11th Snapshot on 2.4.5 kernel.

My advice with freeswan is:-

(1)  Read EVERYTHING first
(2)  Get yourself a faster processor.  You may have to compile your kernel more than once as you get used to how it works (the first time I compiled it I forgot to add in ppp, for example).  Compiling the kernel on a P100 will take a considerable amount of time.

(3)  When you test the first time, test from the far left subnet to the far right subnet.  Don't test from the gateway machines.

It's a challenge.  Satisfying when it works, though.

Subject: [SLUG] freeswan

I want to run a debian firewall with freeswan for internet and a VPN
tunnel.  IPSEC with IKE and a shared secret.

This box will be built from scratch on a minimal harddisk, P100
processor.  It must redirect my internal network to the internet.  It
will redirect specific IP addresses through freeswan VPN  (10.x.x.x
series and other).

OK how do I configure a freeswan firewall deb package the easy way?
Any hints or pointers?
Any apt-get configurations?

My starting point will be 2.2 debian disks, but I have a cable modem now
:-) so internet installs not a problem.

There is a lot of discussion about not 2.4 kernels,  is this still current?
