Hi,

i wonder if there is any chance to have a very easy L2TP/IPSec client installed to gentoo. I dont need any certs, the VPN server is configured to have a PSK

- server adress (vpn.xxx.xx)
- PSK (xxxxxx)
- username/password

Thats all parameters i have and it works via Windows or Ubuntu

Via Windows this is a 3 Minute task via the network wizard..in ubuntu there is a simple gui (https://www.versavpn.com/ubuntu-linux-configuring-running-l2tp)

I really dont wanne mess around with openswan / libreswan details for a manual setup in gentoo. Is there any Easy Config possible?

Thx in advance like always for your great help.

What Desktop are you using? Can't you just set it up in the network manager?

It looks like you can deal with it in configuration files.

sorry but the Howto is nearly 10 years old, and there is no updated version anymore and it is NOT an easy setup.

i like a simple solution as i really have only 3 parameters and via Windows its a 5 minute task

I wrote an Gentoo wiki article covering the SERVER side of it: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/IPsec_L2TP_VPN_server . Its not a pretty protocol. Configuration would normally fall under NetworkManager, but a fully featured ipsec+l2tp+ppp plugin for NetworkManager does not (yet) exist. There IS, however a NetworkManager-l2tp plugin but its not in Portage, but its in some of the overlays. It has limnited ipsec support but it might be just enough to work for you. A more complete solution is l2tp-ipsec-vpn but it not in Portage or any other overlay i can find, therefore, an ebuild will have to written for it.

bin/sh: l2tp-ipsec-vpn-daemon: command not found
