NAME

       ipsec_tncfg - manipulate KLIPS virtual interfaces

SYNOPSIS

       ipsec tncfg
             ipsec tncfg --create virtual
             ipsec tncfg --delete virtual
             ipsec tncfg --attach --virtual virtual --physical physical
             ipsec tncfg --detach --virtual virtual
             ipsec tncfg --clear
             ipsec tncfg --version
             ipsec tncfg --help

OBSOLETE

       Note that tncfg is only supported on the classic KLIPS stack. It is not supported on any
       other stack and will be completely removed in future versions. A replacement command still
       needs to be designed

DESCRIPTION

       The historical use of tncfg is to attach/detach IPsec virtual interfaces (e.g. ipsec0)
       to/from physical interfaces (e.g. eth0) through which packets will be forwarded once
       processed by KLIPS.

       The modern use of tncfg is to create and delete virtual interfaces known as mastXXX. mast
       stands for Mooring and XXX.

       The form with no additional arguments lists the contents of /proc/net/ipsec_tncfg. The
       format of /proc/net/ipsec_tncfg is discussed in ipsec_tncfg(5).

       The --attach form attaches the virtual interface to the physical one.

       The --detach form detaches the virtual interface from whichever physical interface it is
       attached to.

       The --clear form clears all the virtual interfaces from whichever physical interfaces they
       were attached to.

       Virtual interfaces typically have names like ipsec0 or mast0 while physical interfaces
       typically have names like eth0 or ppp0.

EXAMPLES

       ipsec tncfg --create mast12
           creates the mast12 device.

       ipsec tncfg --create ipsec4
           creates an ipsec4 device, but does not attach it.

       ipsec tncfg --attach --virtual ipsec0 --physical eth0
           attaches the ipsec0 virtual device to the eth0 physical device.
