Default Suitable VPN RPM on centos 5?

Hi all,

Our customer wants to install a VPN server on Centos 5 box.

This is what the remote site says. pls read below.

We now have the new firewall & router installed in our office, that supports a secure VPN connection.

We need to enter your Peer IP and your Private IP in our device. They indicated xxxx.xxxx.xxxx/24 as format for the Private IP.

The settings you need to know at our end are the following (
remote site info is given below)

Peer IP:
Server IP: /
Pre-shared key: d769hdsKJ
Ike, Phase1: 3des, sha, dh2
Ipsec, Phase2: 3des, sha
Now, Could you pls let me know the suitable VPN pkg for the above configurations. Can I use Open VPN?

What about Open Swan or Free Swan ?

I prefer to install RPMs. Where can I find RPMs for the right pkg?

I googled and found some info. Below is the URL to download for OpenSwan.


It says , RPM s are available for RHEL3. Can I use it for CENTOS 5. (rhel5)

or should I use Fedora 4 RPMs. pls see below URl.


Or I there a RIGHT RPM for CENTOS 5.

Any help is highly appreciated

Thank you
