NAME
racoon -- IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management daemon
SYNOPSIS
racoon [-46BdFLv] [-f configfile] [-l logfile] [-P isakmp-natt-port] [-p isakmp-port]
DESCRIPTION
racoon speaks the IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management protocol, to estab- lish security associations with other hosts. The SPD (Security Policy Database) in the kernel usually triggers racoon. racoon usually sends all informational messages, warnings and error messages to syslogd(8) with the facility LOG_DAEMON and the priority LOG_INFO. Debugging mes- sages are sent with the priority LOG_DEBUG. You should configure syslog.conf(5) appropriately to see these messages. -4 -6 Specify the default address family for the sockets. -B Install SA(s) from the file which is specified in racoon.conf(5). -d Increase the debug level. Multiple -d arguments will increase the debug level even more. -F Run racoon in the foreground. -f configfile Use configfile as the configuration file instead of the default. -L Include file_name:line_number:function_name in all messages. -l logfile Use logfile as the logging file instead of syslogd(8). -P isakmp-natt-port Use isakmp-natt-port for NAT-Traversal port-floating. The default is 4500. -p isakmp-port Listen to the ISAKMP key exchange on port isakmp-port instead of the default port number, 500. -v This flag causes the packet dump be more verbose, with higher debugging level. racoon assumes the presence of the kernel random number device rnd(4) at /dev/urandom.
