Yea... I had that figured. I was kinda hoping for a bit more detail. Given:
spdadd corpaddr branchaddr any -P out ipsec esp/transport//require;
spdadd branchaddr corpaddr any -P in ipsec esp/transport//require;
Do I just need to add:
spdadd corpaddr branchaddr any -P out ipsec ipcomp/transport//require;
spdadd branchaddr corpaddr any -P in ipsec ipcomp/transport//require;
and the appropriate reversal on the other end? Do I need to specify
these lines before or after the esp lines, or is ordering handled
