Thank you, Kim,
that was very fast! I have seen the wiki page during googling,
but as ist was not about l2tp I was struggling with in that
moment, I didn't dig into it. I'll dig deeper. In meantime I
found, that certificates can just be sent by email - there is no
USB connector, that's why I started with preshared keys.
I'll post either more questions or a success story later.
