Any Doc's on OpenSWAN to Cisco WRV210 available?

I see my wrv210 is using openswan. I would like to do an ipsec tunnel with openswan on linux server. I have to believe this has already been done, maybe not with this specific device. I've searched on openswan but found very little. Can someone point me?


I've connected a tunnel with an BEFSX41. Using the same config with PSK not RSA I get this in the 210's vpn log. I've double checked the PSK. The 210 is being nat'd to the internet the linux server is sitting directly on the internet.

Hey folks, thanks for all your help. I found there was a device in the path not allowing the Nat-T UDP 4500 through. She's up.
