According to the 2nd Edition Firewall book from O'Reilly, L2TP is an
unencrypted protocol, which is implemented above the IP layer. IPSec
is implemented at the IP Layer. Also, according to the book, L2TP is
usually implemented with IPSec.
Although I have yet to play with either, you can choose another
connection method instead of L2TP to run on top of IPSec for OpenBSD
Hope this helps...
