Ubuntu – L2TP IPsec VPN client on Ubuntu 14.10


I need to connect to a L2TP IPsec VPN using Ubuntu 14.10. I previously used L2TP IPsec VPN Manager 1.0.9 from Werner Jaeger in Ubuntu 14.04, and it worked great, but that no longer appears to be supported in 14.10. I have xl2tpd installed. I no longer see the option to add a L2TP Ipsec VPN connection under the VPN Connections menu in Network Connections. Any help or guidance is appreciated.

The lt2p-ipsec-vpn package was deprecated along with OpenSwan. Ubuntu has replaced OpenSwan with StrongSwan, which is available in the main, along with a corresponding network manager plugin in universe.

apt-get install strongswan network-manager-strongswan
