I am trying unsuccessfully to set up an L2TP?IPSec client on Ubuntu 13.04 but have fallen at the first hurdle. I have downloaded the appropriate files - 'l2tp-ipsec-vpn', 'l2tp-ipsec-vpn-daemon' and 'openswan'. and have configured network manager, and used the command 'ipsec verify'. The output from that command follows:
chris@chris-PC2:~$ ipsec verify
To check this machine, you need to run "ipsec verify" as root.
chris@chris-PC2:~$ sudo ipsec verify
[sudo] password for chris:
Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
Version check and ipsec on-path [OK]
Linux Openswan U2.6.38/K(no kernel code presently loaded)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel [FAILED]
SAref kernel support [N/A]
Checking that pluto is running [FAILED]
whack: Pluto is not running (no "/var/run/pluto/pluto.ctl")
Two or more interfaces found, checking IP forwarding Checking NAT and MASQUERADEing [OK]
Checking for 'ip' command [OK]
Checking /bin/sh is not /bin/dash [WARNING]
Checking for 'iptables' command [OK]
Opportunistic Encryption Support [DISABLED]
It appears from this (to me, anyway) that the current kernel does not support L2TP/IPSec. Is there anything I can do about it?
Also, I was expecting to need a configuration file like the file 'client.conf' for OpenVpn but have not found one..
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I had never heard of L2TP/IOSec until this week
