patch question


hey all,

I think this might could be an easy question:

I have a fix for a faulty program on a redhat machine that I downloaded from bugzilla.redhat.com

it is ifup-ipsec.patch - turns out that on certain Redhat Enterprise machines, ipsec is not configured correctly for host to host connections.

I'm still new to Linux, so how would I run the patch? It is already downloaded in the same directory.

thanks
Eagle

You just need to run patch:
patch < ifup-ipsec.patch

If there are directory names in the patch then you can strip them with:
patch -p1 < ifup-ipsec.patch

Thanks,

would the ifdown need the same patch? IPSec still is not active on my computer. I have it configured on my computer, but I cannot activate it.
Although, I think it may be activated, but I run redhat, and if I use the menu, go to system settings -> server settings -> services

Once that dialog opens, I see that the configured devices are eth0, eth1, ipsec0, cfg-ipsec0
active devices eth0, eth1

I've never seen the ipsec0 active, although, if I try to ssh in from a windows box it restricts me. Any idea of why this may be?
