    I have not used it. My impression is that FreeS/WAN is popular for
    professional applications. Could be hard to learn though.

    Things you should consider:
    Is it based on ipsec and proper algorithms
    Automatic re-keying for increased security
    Interoperability - should it work with Microsoft machines and solid
    state firewalls
    Support for different types of certificates
    Should it play together with iptables/NAT on the same box

    ... and so on.
