openswan & checkpoint vpn & PSK pre-shared key

Posted: November 12th, 2007 | Author: | Filed under: howto, linux | Tags: , , , , , , , , | 2 Comments »

Here is how I managed to successfully connect to a hardware vpn device using openswan and opensuse:

conn chkpnt
authby=secret
pfs=yes
keyexchange=ike
left=your.ip
right=vpn's.ip
auto=start

Easy…:)

/etc/init.d/ipsec restart


Check status and debug with:
ipsec auto --status
ipsec barf

Update:

Add: rightsubnet=ips.behind.vpn.box to to get in touch with remote network.
