ipsec_setup - Man Page

wrapper routine to the Libreswan init system


setup is called (via ipsec setup) by the system administrator to perform init system related tasks to Libreswan, such as start, stop, status, reload, etc for the Internet Keying Exchange (IKE) daemon pluto. It is available for backwards compatibility with Openswan and FreeS/WAN.

Supported Init Systems

Currently, the classic initscripts (sysv) and systemd are supported. Support for upstart will be added soon.
