I'm going off of the handbook section for setting up IPsec but I'm
having some problems because I'm having to modify the instructions
some. The handbook section covers a VPN secured by IPsec, but I'm
trying to setup a point-to-point between my host and another.
All seemed to be going well. I've compiled it into my kernel. I've
installed racoon from ports and the first time I tried to ping my peer
host, it paused for several seconds and then started up (as the
handbook mentions). However, when I do "setkey -D" I get, "no SAD
entries." This makes me sad. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I have this in my /etc/ipsec.conf file (in the below 192.168.0.5 is my
IP, 192.168.0.6 is the remote host):
add 192.168.0.5 192.168.0.6 ipcomp 256 3des
I should make note that the other host is not a FreeBSD machine, it is
a printer. I'm doing this as an exercise to learn setting this up.
As for the racoon setup file, I copied the file from
/usr/local/etc/racoon and modified only this entry:
sainfo address 192.168.0.6 any address 192.168.0.5 any
lifetime time 30 sec;
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Oh, what makes me think
that it's not working is wireshark and tcpdump both didn't seem to
dump anything that would lead me to believe anything is being
encrypted. What's odd, is that this printer I'm working against has
been set to disallow any traffic from my IP address without it's being
