Description Uwe Beck 2004-08-10 17:30:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
racoonctl can administrate a running racoon daemon.
racoonctl from ipsec-tools-0.2.5-0.5 RPM in RHEL3 does not work.

[root]# racoonctl reload-config
 08000000 18f00408
racoonctl: connect: No such file or directory

racoonctl needs the /tmp/.racoon socket to connect the racoon daemon.

There was no "--enable-adminport" use in the
ipsec-tools-0.2.5-0.5.src.rpm spec file for build the daemon and tool.
For racoonctl function the racoon daemon must compile with:

CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" ./configure --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/ \
 --libdir=/%{_lib} \
 --sysconfdir=/etc \
 --mandir=%{_mandir} \
 --with-kernel-headers=`pwd`/kernel-headers \

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the racoon daemon
2. use racoonctl (racoonctl reload-config)

Actual Results:  racoonctl does not work

Expected Results:  racoonctl should work

Confirmed at RHEL3 U2.
Comment 6 David Lehman 2004-11-22 15:27:47 EST
Looking at ipsec-tools-0.2.5/src/racoon/admin.c, I see the following:

        if (com.ac_cmd == ADMIN_RELOAD_CONF) {
                /* reload does not work at all! */
                goto end;

I notice also that the switch statement in signal_handler() doesn't have a case
for SIGHUP, so I suspect this will just get a little further than before and
still not work.
Comment 7 Uwe Beck 2004-11-23 05:00:32 EST
I see. Then it would be better upgrading ipsec-tools to version 0.3
which also have support for the NAT traversal, see #136775. NAT
traversal is a relevant feature we need today.

ipsec-tools-0.3.3-x is already in RHEL4_BETA2.
