But I needed a VPN solution, and fast. At least temporary so I can think about in something else later. So I choose L2TP since is easily to configure in windows and.. you know how "clever" windows users use to be.. :D
Well. after the configuration in my work's pfsense and testing in my windows vm, I need to test on a Mac OS X cause some people in my work have Macbooks.. so I discovered that MacOS (ATM) only accepts out-of-the-box Cisco IPsec, PPTP and L2TP+IPSEC. Apple please...
Well, nothing is lost, just open Terminal.app and do this:
echo "plugin L2TP.ppp" > options
echo "l2tpnoipsec" >> options
sudo mv options /etc/ppp
And voilá, now your mac can connect to a goddamit L2TP without IPsec.
Obs: I don't know how much I can trust in L2TP but...

WCH341 is a quite nice (and cheap) USB adapter (I got one by almost 3USD). Works perfect in Windows and Linux, but for mac it's another story…..
After lots of searches and drivers, I found this guy .
Note: Isn't a driver, it's a software that can connect using your cable, but don't worry, the software is very nice and works perfect.
Also, the developer is a nice guy and answer my mail quite fast when I had a problem with the last version. Thanks Aaron.

First of all, you need some packages (ok, if you already have some of these, you can skip them):
# emerge -pv git gnupg flex bison gperf libsdl wxGTK squashfs-tools curl ncurses zlib schedtool perl-Switch zip unzip
For 64bits systems, you need a little more
# emerge -pv emul-linux-x86-baselibs emul-linux-x86-compat emul-linux-x86-cpplibs
Note: I don' t know if cpplibs are really necessary, but I'll let here.
Make sure you' re using python 2.x instead of 3.x when you're about to compile
# eselect python list
