Android VPN - Want to kill self

After days of trying to setup openswan and make it work via IPSec/L2TP with roadwarriors and ultimately make it work with my Nexus One, I now want to kill myself. Setting up openswan is no easy task and requires reading from various sources and skim through outdated posts.

However I did get it to work as expected with Windows road warriors.

It appears that racoon (the IKE daemon on Nexus) dies soon after the tunnel is established:

I think that's why you get all that l2tp traffic on the loose where it isn't supposed to be. I abandon all hope it maybe an openswan | NETKEY issue on CENTOS 5.2.

I will instead go for the OpenVpn solution which I am already using for my net.
