NAMEipsec setup - control IPSEC subsystem
SYNOPSISipsec setup command
DESCRIPTIONSetup controls the FreeS/WAN IPSEC subsystem, including both the Klips kernel code and the Pluto key-negotiation daemon. (It is a synonym for the ``rc'' script for the subsystem; the system runs the equivalent of ipsec setup start at boot time, and ipsec setup stop at shutdown time, more or less.)
The action taken depends on the specific command, and on the contents of the config setup section of the IPSEC configuration file (/etc/ipsec.conf, see ipsec.conf(5)). Current commands are:
The stop operation tries to clean up properly even if assorted accidents have occurred, e.g. Pluto having died without removing its lock file.
FILES/etc/rc.d/init.d/ipsec the script itself
/etc/init.d/ipsec alternate location for the script
/etc/ipsec.conf IPSEC configuration file
/var/run/ipsec.info %defaultroute saved information
