Hi
I already configured strongswan for site-to-site tunnel. in my scenario ipsec tunnel is to up without any problem.
But I have to send layer2 traffic via this tunnel, because of nature of ipsec, it is not possible, so I want to setup l2tp tunnel in conjunction with ipsec.
Anyone does configure openl2tp with strongswan ?

Thanks for more help or guidance

As you mention L2 tunnelling, are you looking for L2TPv3 ethernet pseudowires?
L2TPv2 uses PPP and last time I looked, doesn't support PPP Bridge Control Protocol (bridged L2 over PPP). So you'll need L2TPv3 to carry L2 traffic.
OpenL2TP doesn't support L2TPv3. However, if you only need static (unmanaged) L2TPv3 pseudowires, see http://forums.openl2tp.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=66. If you need full L2TPv3 support, we have ProL2TP, which is commercial software. Contact sales at openl2tp.org for details.
