I was able to implement a robust solution using Openswan with Red Hat and Ubuntu Linux in record time.
Included are details and problems of making Openswan work with other IPSec devices, such as Watchguard (in my case), Cisco and Microsoft's IPSec implementation. And when dealing with connecting to Microsoft, they deal with the problems you will encounter and how to work through them.
If you are planning to setup IPSec on a Linux server using Openswan, you'll want this book at your side to help guide you through the entire process.
Very wordy. No illustration. But this seems to be only book on Openswan. What a shame.
