Description Zhiyong Wu 2007-11-02 05:12:13 EDT
Description of problem:

  When having ipsecv6 tests about "SGW Tunnel Mode ESP 3DES-CBC with HMAC-SHA1 

authentication" in the software gateway mode,we found that NUT cannot Set SPD 



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


Software Environment:   
TAHI package:    

How reproducible:
  every time

Steps to Reproduce:    
  1. Configure TAHI test environment.     
  2. Run the TAHI test suite     
  3. After the test completes, check for the results 
Actual results:

   NUT cannot Set SPD entries

Expected results:

   NUT can Set SPD entries

Additional info:
   please refer to 


   (1) 3	6.1.2 Select SPD (ICMP Type), ESP=3DES-CBC HMAC-SHA1
Comment 1 Zhiyong Wu 2007-11-02 05:19:20 EDT
   Also about it:

   when NUT is set to the host mode,

   pls refer to the url below:


   (1) 3	5.1.2 Select SPD (ICMP Type), ESP=3DES-CBC HMAC-SHA1
Comment 3 Zhiyong Wu 2008-02-20 04:18:35 EST
the test case still FAIL On RHEL5.2

for more details, pls refer to 


(1) 3	5.1.2 Select SPD (ICMP Type), ESP=3DES-CBC HMAC-SHA1

test for RHEL5.2-20080430

this is IPsec test for RHEL5.2-20080430,also fail
Comment 7 Lawrence Lim 2008-05-07 10:47:37 EDT
Could you confirm whether kernel support this mode?

SGW Tunnel Mode ESP 3DES-CBC with HMAC-SHA1 authentication
Comment 8 Thomas Graf 2008-05-07 11:11:57 EDT
Yes, the kernel supports both algorithms. As you can see in the test log, the
algorithms have been successfully configured, if they weren't supported this
step would fail.
Comment 9 Thomas Graf 2008-05-07 11:20:25 EDT
To me this looks like something is broken in the test scripts. Out of the

Remote(ipsecSetSPD.rmt) ``/usr/local/v6eval//bin/rhel51//ipsecSetSPD.rmt -t 
eval $main::rOpt_upperspec='icmp6'
upperspec must be one of any|tcp|udp
ipsecSetSPD.rmt [parameters]
src=source address

ps format result

test for RHEL5.2-20080430

this is IPsec test for RHEL5.2-20080430,also fail

kernel 2.6.18-92.el5 ipsec-tools-0.6.5-9.el5

convert the result from html format to ps
Comment 12 Thomas Graf 2008-06-13 17:21:36 EDT
According to the logs, this looks like a problem with ipsec-tools, the test
cannot be configured correctly. The algorithm itself is supported by the kernel.
Comment 13 Tomas Mraz 2008-06-13 17:47:49 EDT
What is the command on the tested computer that fails?
Comment 14 Red Hat Bugzilla 2008-07-07 21:24:11 EDT
Adding yshao@redhat.com to the cc list as the manager of the disabled user zwu@redhat.com who reported this bug
Comment 15 Tomas Mraz 2008-07-29 14:31:19 EDT
Without the required information it is not possible to fix the problem. Also
from the attached logs it seems clear that the command which is failing is part
of the testsuite and not the setkey command which is contained in the
ipsec-tools package.

Closing as NOTABUG for now, please reopen if you can provide logs where the
setkey command fails.
