linux ipsec vpn client
can anyone recommend to me a linux vpn client that can do point to point over ipsec?
I tried VPNC but it only does remote access VPN.
I need to be able to connect to a VPN with the following parameters
Authentication Method Pre Shared Key
Encryption Scheme IKE
Diffie-Hellman Group DH Group 2
Encryption Algorithm 3DES
Hashing Algorithm SHA
Main or Aggressive Mode Main Mode
Lifetime (for renegotiation) 2800 seconds
Encryption Algorithm 3DES
Integrity (Hash) SHA-1
Oakley Group DH Group 2
Perfect Forward Secrecy No PFS
Lifetime (for renegotiation) 3600 seconds
I have tried VPNC, but that is remote access VPN client. I need a point to point client

What you did not mention is what the other host is running like frees/wan or OpenSwan or Cisco, so I'm only sending you the Linux based information.
The Cisco VPN client can handle all of those parameters stated or at the very least a good 90% of them and there is a Linux based version. You need to be a Cisco partner to obtain it though.
V-ONE's SmartPass Client runs on Win32, CE/PocketPC, Solaris, Red Hat Linux, MacOS, and PalmOS devices, for use with V-ONE SmartGate VPN servers
PPTP Client is a Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD client for the proprietary Microsoft Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol, PPTP. Allows connection to a PPTP based Virtual Private Network (VPN).
You might also have a read of this at jixen dot tripod dotcom Ipsec practical configurations for Linux Freeswan 1.3. as it shows some nice examples.

From memory, that looks like a Cisco 3000 or maybe a Pix. But memory may fail me. The guys managing the concentrator would probably have or be able to get the Cisco client for you. I had that working at Fedora 10, but that was a long time ago.

The VPN i am connecting to is a Cisco ASA 5510.
I have looked at openswan, but can not get my head around the concept of left and right in the configuration file.
My Centos machines has a single NIC which has the IP Address of 192.168.40.105. It's external IP after NAT is 126.96.36.199.
The VPN server I am connecting to is 188.8.131.52 and the encryption domain is 10.152.20.10.
Using those details, what would the config roughly look like for openswan?
