I thought I'd post the details on getting Endian (2.2RC3) to talk to Redhat/Centos (5.x) using a network-to-network IPSEC tunnel.

Endian uses openswan/pluto, RH/Centos uses KAME/racoon. Following the RH/Centos doc for establishing a networ-to-network tunnel between two RH/Centos boxes is dead easy. However what is not documented is that by default both AH and ESP encryption are used in stage 2. By default, Endian/openswan only uses ESP encryption.

The easiest solution is to disbale AH encryption on the RH/Centos end using the AH_PROTO directive in the ifcfg-ipsecX file:

#Started out of rc.local

Then in endian, use:

IKE - 3DES, SHA, DH Group 2
ESP - 3DES, SHA1, Phase 1 group
aggressive mode (optional)
Perfect Forward Secrecy

That config is directly compatable with the default RH/Centos ipsec config. You could just select everything but that wastes time in the setup negotiation.

I hope this saves someone else a lot of time/effort!
