     iked — Internet Key Exchange Daemon


     iked [-f cfgfile] [-l logfile] [-d level] [-F]


     The iked program communicates using the IKE protocol ( RFC 2409 ) to provide automatic
     keying for an IPsec capable host. The daemon communicates with the host os via PF_KEY ( RFC
     2367 ) to obtain the local policy configuration and to receive key aquisition requests. The
     daemon is also capable of acting as a client or client gateway and can create appropriate
     IPsec policy entries on bahalf of the host or peer to faclilitate remote access IPsec VPN
     connectivity. For more informaiton, please see the ikea(1) and ikec(1) man pages.

     The options are as follows:

     -f cfgfile  Specify an alternate configuration file.

     -l logfile  Specify a log output file.

     -d level    Specify debug output level between 0-6.

     -p pidfile  Spefify a process id file.

     -F          Run the program as a foreground application.


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


     The default configuration file is /etc/iked.conf
