I second the notion that OpenVPN is a better solution for Linux<->Linux
VPN. Furthermore, the 2.6 Kernel's implementation of IPSEC is currently
broken with respect to Netfilter/iptables. Even when the implementation
is fixed, it will still be awkward to firewall IPSEC because of the
elimination of the 'ipsecN' devices.
So unless there is a need for IPSEC for compatibility, I would avoid it.
