Need help with IPSec VPN


Hi All,
I'm running SuSE 9.1 with kernel version 2.6.5-7.95 and I have just installed strongSWAN.

I have edited the ipsec.conf file and when I try to connect the VPN tunnel I get the following error. If anyone has any tips that would help me out, it would be great.

ssrdul01:~ # ipsec setup start
ipsec_setup: (/etc/ipsec.conf, line 47) section header "left=%defaultroute" has wrong number of fields (1) -- `start' aborted

Thanks,
Clay

What does your ipsec.conf file look like?

Regards
Jo

Here's my ipsec.conf file:

conn ssvpn
# Left security gateway, subnet behind it, next hop toward right.
left=%defaultroute
leftcert=/local/root/certs/cdillard_cert.pem
leftsubnet=0.0.0.0/24
# Right security gateway, subnet behind it, next hop toward left.
right=66.178.157.244
rightid="C=us, ST=NC, L=RTP, O=SECURESPEED, OU=Corporate_HQ, CN=ssrduvpn01, Email=brkks@securespeed.cc"
rightsubnet=%any

Sorry - beyond me. Not that I'm a strongSWAN guru or anything.

have you tried the mailing lists on www.strongswan.org

Could you post a response back here when you do resolve the problem?

Cheers
Jo
