NAME

     racoon — IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management daemon

SYNOPSIS

     racoon [-46BdFLVv] [-f configfile] [-l logfile] [-P isakmp-natt-port] [-p isakmp-port]

DESCRIPTION

     racoon speaks the IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management protocol, to establish 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
     messages 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      Print racoon version and compilation options and exit.

     -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.

RETURN VALUES

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

FILES

     /etc/racoon.conf  default configuration file.
