Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138105
setkey calls for manual keying choke
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:50:02 EDT
Description of problem:
The setkey calls used in ifup-ipsec use comments (lines introduced by #). At
least the setkey distributes in FC3 does not understand this and there are no
comments in the more commonly used setkey calls.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.define host-to-host IPsec connection with manual key
setkey -D shows nothing
setkey -D should show appropriate parameters
I'll add the bug to the blocker list since some functionality is completely
non-operational. But the fact that this has not been noticed earlier might
suggest it is not that important.

Patch to remove the comments
This should be fixed to make ipsec-tools less braindamaged; it worked
fine with the previous version.
With -c or -f on the command line, setkey accepts the following
ration syntax. Lines starting with hash signs (â#â) are treated
Ergo, setkey is broken.
Fixed in 0.3.3-2. Off to figure out what the upstream maintainer is
