Yes, I've gotten it working.  I'm even using certificates to identify the
endpoints.  However, using racoon to negotiate my keys, my fixed endpoint
panics on a regular basis.  Apparently, there's a rather substantial bug
in the kernel somewhere.  See kern/13813 for some details.

BTW, I'll gladly share my configuration files.  Especially if it means
that someone will fix that bug ;-)
