validating ipsec in 2.4.21 kernel

i am new to linux.i think i am stuck with something basic
i tried installing the ipsec features into 2.4.21 kernel by patching the DM patch...there were no errors while patching.i compiled the kernel and included the patched kernel as a separate entry in grub.conf.
now, how will i know that the ipsec features are included in this new kernel.can i demonstrate it somehow ? please help me out

until you get a better reply....I prefer 2.6 kernel and you have not mentioned your distro so I have no clue as to your firewall type.

but you should get an idea in 2 main ways.

read your /var/log/syslog....if your firewall is wanting ipsec and its not enabled you should get an error message or the reverse you have something and the firewall may report it can not enable feature.

2) Hopefully you have ethernet as this is easier....than usb wireless etc
.....turn off your network...using applet or manual command with root powers eg ifconfig eth0 down

open a terminal and manually stop your firewall and re-start it.

with luck you will see errors or none....then if none run status.

this kinda works with shorewall if you have it. But I am using net at the moment so can not demonstrate it
