Hi xrats,

My* test enviroment* is in MS-Windows over Oracle Virtualbox, as I said
About default config, I think you must change conf files to a desired

I have installed VBox in diferent windows machine, each one with a 2 VMs:

windows vm []--*INTERNAL NET* ---[] opensuse vm



slack   vm []--*INTERNAL NET* ---[] opensuse vm

the goal: windows-vm communicate with slackware-vm, using vpn.

screen shot:

First, I installed opensuse 12.1 - you are running gentoo, I didn't
installed this distro yet - but I start to configure the strongswan base on
a example from site http://www.strongswan.org/uml-testresults.html and I
choose this http://www.strongswan.org/uml-testresults.html 'cause is what I
expect to do in production.
Based on the example files, I started to play, however I'm new user in VPNs
and I found some difficult in what scenario is more easy to do.

I start to generate the x509 certificates - before to configure strongswan.
But I think the PSK - pre shared key - maybe easier -  I will try this

After this I started to configure the strongswan - Files: strongswan.conf /
ipsec.conf / ipsec.secrets Folders: /ipsec.d/certs and ipsec.d/private
But, I my case, the certificates generated before, was generate with
openssl 1.0, so I did to do an update. The package original for opensuse
12.1 is 4.5.3, and the Andreas suggested to 4.6.2. This solved my problem
with certificates, but I still with other problems, and trying to solve
this now ...

Any doubt ?

I hope this may be useful to you.
