    I'm trying to use FreeSwan as a VPN client to my firewall's VPN server. As
    now I only used the windows client, but I wish to use linux workstations

    In the windows client I have to set up the following data:

    remote gateway -> right=
    remote network -> rightsubnet=
    pre-shared key -> in the secret file
    ike proposal -> ???
    ipsec proposal -> ???

    for both the proposal I have to choose encryption algorithm (AES, Twofish,
    Blowfish and so on), Integrity function (MD5, SHA-1 for IKE and HMAC-MD5,
    HMAC-SHA-1 for IPSec), ike/ipsec mode (main mode, aggressive for ike and
    tunnel for ipsec), ike/pfs group (none, modp 768/1024/1536)

    can you help me with the two proposal settings ? I googled around but I've
    found no good answers :(
    the current error I'm getting is
    packet from x.x.x.x:500: ignoring informational payload. type
    packet from x.x.x.x:500: received and ignored informational message
