Hi everyone,
    thanks for such a well-developed and maintained library.

I'm trying to setup Ipsec/L2TP on my Ubuntu 14 server with IKEv2 and a PSK.

I've read through a bunch of tutorials online:

and I've opened up UDP ports 500 & 4500, but I still have clients
complaining about gateway timeouts and not being able to connect to the VPN.

Is there some sort of a configuration script that can walk you through all
the necessary steps to get this working, or a gist that someone could share
of their config?
I don't see anything in my /var/log/auth.conf that's indicative of VPN
