Right. The router I am attempting to connect to is a Linksys BEFSX41,
which appears to only do IPSec. When I had posted before, I was of the
impression that the settings were for VPN for each protocol, not so, it
appears to be just passthrough for PPTP and PPPoE, not actual servers.
I am going to try setting up a tunnel using kvpnc as a front end for
racoon. If it works, I'll post results here - (and probably the ubuntu
WPA wiki if the regulars here think I have a decent set of instructions.)
