Solved When to use Openswan?

I am trying to look into the whole VPN/IPSec topic.

I read the FreeBSD handbook but I am not sure about the different packages.

As far as I understand FreeBSD provides IPSec support already. So what's the purpose of a package like OpenSwan. Is OpenSwan a replacement of the "native" IPSec feature of FreeBSD or is it an enhancement?

Thanks for your help
