In the main VPN Access Manager, under the 'Edit' menu, in addition to 
the 'add', 'delete', 'rename', and 'properties' items, there's an item 
called "Public". Selecting it puts a checkmark next to it when you drop 
down the menu again. Problem is - I've no idea what 'Public" means in 
this context.  I went to the 'Help' menu, and searched and browsed 
through the docs - but no mention of it (All the search pages show a 
'Copyright 2011', so I suspect they're quite a bit out of date).  I went 
to the webpage 'support' pages, and reviewed client documentation there 
- but it all shows a 'Copyright 2010', so they're even more out of date 
I guess.

So - what does "Public" mean here?

As a side note, I just set up a strongSwan gateway instance in an AWS 
VPC, and thanks to both the debug output in strongSwan and their 
documenation, and the VPN Trace utility in Shrew, I was able to 
successfully configure an IPSEC Mutual PSK + XAuth session, that I have 
up right now, running like a champ. Woohoo! I'll write up wiki howto 
when I get a chance.
