NAME

racoonctl - racoon administrative control tool

SYNOPSIS

racoonctl reload-config racoonctl show-schedule racoonctl [-l [-l]] show-sa [isakmp|esp|ah|ipsec] racoonctl flush-sa [isakmp|esp|ah|ipsec] racoonctl delete-sa saopts racoonctl establish-sa [-u identity] saopts racoonctl vpn-connect [-u-identity ] vpn_gateway racoonctl vpn-disconnect vpn_gateway racoonctl show-event [-l]

DESCRIPTION

racoonctl is used to control racoon(8) operation, if ipsec-tools was configured with adminport support. Communication between racoonctl and racoon(8) is done through a UNIX socket. By changing the default mode and ownership of the socket, you can allow non-root users to alter racoon(8) behavior, so do that with caution.

The following commands are available:

TagDescription
reload-config
  This should cause racoon(8) to reload its configuration file. This seems completely broken at the time this man page is written.
show-schedule
  Unknown command.
show-sa [isakmp|esp|ah|ipsec]
  Dump the SA: All the SAs if no SA class is provided, or either ISAKMP SAs, IPsec ESP SAs, IPsec AH SAs, or all IPsec SAs. Use -l to increase verbosity.
flush-sa [isakmp|esp|ah|ipsec]
  is used to flush all SAs if no SA class is provided, or a class of SAs, either ISAKMP SAs, IPsec ESP SAs, IPsec AH SAs, or all IPsec SAs.
[-u username saopts]
  Establish an SA, either an ISAKMP SA, IPsec ESP SA, or IPsec AH SA. The optional -u username can be used when establishing an ISAKMP SA while hybrid auth is in use. racoonctl will prompt you for the password associated with username and these credentials will be used in the Xauth exchange.

saopts has the following format:

isakmp {inet|inet6} src dst
{esp|ah} {inet|inet6} src/prefixlen/port dst/prefixlen/port
  {icmp|tcp|udp|any}
TagDescription
[-u username vpn_gateway]
  This is a particular case of the previous command. It will establish an ISAKMP SA with vpn_gateway.
delete-sa saopts
  Delete an SA, either an ISAKMP SA, IPsec ESP SA, or IPsec AH SA.
vpn-disconnect vpn_gateway
  This is a particular case of the previous command. It will kill all SAs associated with vpn_gateway.
show-event [-l]
  Dump all events reported by racoon(8), then quit. The -l flag causes racoonctl to not stop once all the events have been read, but rather to loop awaiting and reporting new events.

Command shortcuts are available:

TagDescription
rc reload-config
ss show-sa
sc show-schedule
fs flush-sa
ds delete-sa
es establish-sa
vc vpn-connect
vd vpn-disconnect
se show-event

RETURN VALUES

The command should exit with 0 on success, and non-zero on errors.

FILES

TagDescription
/var/racoon/racoon.sock or
/var/run/racoon.sock
