Hi Community,
I recently plunged into IPsec world and am overwhelmed by the richness of
IPsec particularly strongSwan.

I am trying to configure strongSwan on Ubuntu(Karmic).
I installed strongSwan packages(strongSwan, its Network Manager module and
few other packages starting with strongSwan) from synaptic package manager.
But I could not find ipsec.conf, ipsec.secrets files on the file system.

I had installed strongSwan on FC9 also, but that was through source building
and all configuration files were there in case of FC9.

I am confused ..do I need to create these files by myself on Ubuntu?
Or I need to build strongSwan through source(if it helps)?
Or there is some problem if these files are not there by default?

I have invested enough time searching and configuring things of different
OS, please help me if anyone have some idea.

Any help would be appreciated.
