I have a Netgear Prosafe FVS318G VPN appliance that I need to establish a VPN to.

Although you can download some VPN client software from the netgear website to establish the VPN, it's windows only and I'm running Ubuntu on my desktop. It appears to be IPSEC.

How do I go about setting this up? I tried installing the strongswan and network-manager-strongswan packages but when I try to add a VPN with the type set to IPsec/IKEv2, network manager sits there hung.

How would I set this up?
