Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-11-04 12:27:03 EST
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.define host-to-host IPsec connection with manual key
2.restart network
Actual results:
setkey -D shows nothing

Expected results:
setkey -D should show appropriate parameters

Additional info:
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.

This should be fixed to make ipsec-tools less braindamaged; it worked
fine with the previous version.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-04 14:54:02 EST
   Configuration syntax
     With -c or -f on the command line, setkey accepts the following
     ration syntax.  Lines starting with hash signs (’#’) are treated
as com-
     ment lines.

Ergo, setkey is broken.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-04 15:30:40 EST
Fixed in 0.3.3-2. Off to figure out what the upstream maintainer is
