 pipsecd configuration
Author: John Congdon

I have pipsecd installed on a FreeBSD4.0 machine and I am getting some errors. I have looked everywehere (In my mind anyway), but the documentation seems thin.

Here is my pipsecd.conf:

sa ipesp spi=1000 auth=hmac-md5-96 akey=XXXXX enc=blowfish_cbc ekey=AAAAA dest=IP of remote
sa ipesp spi=1000 auth=hmac-md5-96 akey=YYYYY enc=blowfish_cbc ekey=BBBBB
if /dev/tun0 local_spi=1000 remote_spi=1000


Here is my logs:

Sep 7 00:10:23 nat pipsecd[1281]: pipsecd starting
Sep 7 00:10:23 nat pipsecd[1281]: illegal hex character '|'
Sep 7 00:10:23 nat pipsecd[1281]: No auth key on line 1
Sep 7 00:10:23 nat pipsecd[1281]: local address for Remote_IP is Local_IP
Sep 7 00:10:23 nat pipsecd[1281]: illegal hex character '|'
Sep 7 00:10:23 nat pipsecd[1281]: No auth key on line 2


I am confused. Should I change the akey and ekey's above?

Thank you

Hmmm... my guess is that the keys need to be hex (never thought about it before, but all mine are valid hex)... just change it to something like aabbccddeeff and see what happens...
