    from quick glance.... should be the following in the guide

    The shared secret is defined in the /etc/ipsec.secrets file. Make sure it is long and random:

    %SERVERIP% %any: PSK "69EA16F2C5DCED8B29E74A7D1B0FE99E69F6BDCD3E44"

  • thanks for reply ...

    @rakyandita assuming the VPN is setup correctly server side, and you just need to connect on Windows, our guide should work for you.

    thanks, i was see your link. then, what mus i fill the "key" form in client side ? is it the key in /etc/shared.secret in server side ?
    in tab "security" what must i chose for password authentication protocol ??

    @rakyandita assuming you followed Raymii's guide, your shared secret should be here: /etc/ipsec.secrets

    Authentication protocols should be able to be left as defaults, just add the pre-shared key within "Advanced Settings". Hope this helps.
