Openswan is good to keep around, just in case you need to talk to IPSec
devices. But it's a pain in the butt; it's NAT-unfriendly, free and good
Windows clients are lacking, interoperability is problematic, etc.

I said, to hell with it, i installed OpenVPN and It Simply Works. It is
easy to setup (both server and clients), it does not care about NAT, the
Windows client is not a problem (it's the same software as the server),
interoperability is a breeze...
