Created attachment 816182 [details]
When I type system-config-network, this is what I see

Description of problem:

In section Host-to-Host Connection

The first few steps don't seem to work:

1) In a command shell, type system-config-network to start the Network Administration Tool.
2) On the IPsec tab, click New to start the IPsec configuration wizard.

I don't see any IPsec tab.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@hoho6 user1]# uname -a
Linux hoho6.chidig.com 3.11.6-200.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Oct 18 22:34:18 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@hoho6 user1]#

I did a yum update a few minutes ago. 

How reproducible:

every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a terminal session, log in as root
2. type 'system-config-network'
3. look for IPsec tab.

Actual results:

Could not find IPsec tab

Expected results:

Found IPsec tab

It looks like the functionality of system-config-network is now done by the NetworkManager (since Fedora 16?)

In documentation 5.1. The NetworkManager Daemon

The command service NetworkManager start

is now done by a systemd friendly process:

[root@hoho6 user1]# service NetworkManager start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start  NetworkManager.service
[root@hoho6 user1]# 


I'm continuing along this path..

Following the instructions in the documentation, I finally rest at this point:

[user1@hoho6 ~]$ nm-applet &
[1] 4907
[user1@hoho6 ~]$ ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area
** Message: Stopping registered applet secret agent because GNOME Shell is running


It is a little confusing.
Comment 3 Eric Christensen 2014-06-27 14:30:19 EDT
Sorry for the delay (and the incorrect information).  The Security Guide is undergoing an audit and we're finding a lot of old instructions.  The IPSec instructions fall into that "old information".  We've already rewritten portions of the VPN section.  Hope to get this out in time for Fedora 21.
