With opensuse Linux 11.2 I installed the vpn client

which seems to have been successful. But ... either because your
documentation is too sparse or because I am looking at the wrong places
I cannot get the GUI running to insert the profil already provided by
the intended host:


001109ea63a6:/home/am/internet/shrewvpn/ike/script # ./iked -F


With or without the -F switch there is an immediate return to the
console prompt.

I thereforwould be most grateful to get a hint on how

  - to get the GUI running and to import the profil
  - to get the connection to the host

Please bear with me for these questions perhaps a bit trivial.
