I m having problem with my redhat 9.0
I need to test few things using ipsec.
I really want to know few things first.
1) How can i check if ipsec is "installed" on my system.
2) If its not "installed" How can i do it. I did check on freeS/WAN and all i got was to recompile the kernel things .is that wat i have to do ?
thanx sir, I downloaded and installed the freeS/Wan package and now my ipsec services are enabled.
but i wonder if i could use kame instead of free S/WAN coz it looks pretty easy to manage than free S/WAN.
but i only see kame for openbsd freebsd netbsd etc etc .
I again ran into some trouble with swan
I downloaded the rpm and did some rpm -i etc
the swan is installed and i created some sample connections.
and they did not seem to work
and when i did ipsec whack --listen
it shows me the following message
002 listening for IKE messages
002 forgetting secrets
002 loading secrets from "/etc/ipsec.secrets"
003 "/etc/ipsec.secrets" line 3: syntax error in IPv6 numeric address "192.168.0.26:PSK"
i dono from where this IPv6 has dropped in (i know it must be one of my mistakes)
Following are the rpms that i intalled
any ideas pros??
desperately waiting for a reply
Have you got it fixed yet? I think /etc/ipsec.secrets contains your RSA signature. Maybe you can try recreating the ipsec.secrets file. There should be docs on how to do that. I have not had problems with this but I have moved on to using .x509 certificates for authentication in order to interoperate with windows xp. It is not that complicated and /etc/ipsec.secrets will contain just a single line indicating the file name of your certificate.
