Hey John,

I do not require encryption at all, it's a secure and internal channel 
but it requires me to connect via either pptp or l2tp.
This is the reason I am asking.
I had the chance of finding the SoftEther Project which gives a lot in 
terms of VPN Client and Server.

But yet to try it.
Also they have all sorts of beta versions but not something they call 
stable in their downloads.

I think I will try to use their product if I will not find an example on 
how to use l2tp without ipsec encryption.
