There are lots of Linux users using L2TP without IPsec. When NetworkManager-l2tp was first released, it didn't even have IPsec support for at least a year.

On Fedora the NetworkManager-l2tp packages has a 'Recommends' libreswan which installs libreswan, but allows removing libreswan afterward.

I am a little confused why strongswan is down as being an optional dependency. This functionality appeared to simply be broken up until I checked journalctl and saw that the absence of strong/libreswan was eating my face.

No. Please read makepkg man page, specifically the --skippgpcheck part.

After gpg command I got an error, either immediately:
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure
or more often after a delay:
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Connection timed out

@ilpianista as new maitainer:
Would it be possible to remove validpgpkeys added on 2017-08-01 or somehow automate whole process? I really don't wish to manually maintain keys...

@mithaler please execute this command before trying again to build package:
$ gpg --recv-keys 49A7787EF8D3C039
This will recieve key and you will be able to verify content and continue.

Do I need a add a PGP public key for this? I'm getting this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
network-manager-l2tp-1.2.8.tar.gz ... FAILED (unknown public key 49A7787EF8D3C039)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

I got: "VPN connection: failed to connect: 'Cannot create run-dir /usr/var/run (Read-only file system)'"

Please add '--localstatedir=/var' to configure line.

I was able to build it only after I had installed nm-connection-editor (see this comment:

Probably nm-connection-editor should be added to dependencies, because it contains required by this package.

The dependencies for this AUR package have been updated.

@leemeng0x61 are you saying the latest code in GitHub repository lets you connect to the VPN server like it did with tapia?

But note, tapia would have been referring to networkmanager-l2tp 1.2.2.

networkmanager-l2tp 1.2.4 is the latest version. There have only been four commits in the GitHub repository since 1.2.4 :

Main issue with this package is that openswan isn't a dependency, but libreswan and xl2tpd are.
