complete lock using VPN (raccoon)
Last modified: 2008-10-14 14:04:07 EDT
I am not sure when this started, but with kernel-126.96.36.199-29.fc9.i686
I get regular locks when stopping/starting VPN (using racoon).
I use the script below to establish VPN link.
The script starts OK.
then, when I ctl-C the script and start same script with different
network parameters the computer sometimes (1 in 10 tries)
completely locks, even the keyboard keys caps-lock and num-lock
do not change the keyboard lights.
I used Fedora 6 before - there was no such problem there.
I think this is a kernel problem. racoon is very unlikely to lock the system completely.
Extremely annoying problem.
P.S. vpn script
echo "flush; spdflush;
spdadd $VIRTUAL_IP_ADDR/24 $RENOTE_NETW any
-P out ipsec esp/tunnel/$LOCAL_PUBLIC_ADDR-$VSU_ADDR/require ;
spdadd $RENOTE_NETW $VIRTUAL_IP_ADDR/24 any
-P in ipsec esp/tunnel/$VSU_ADDR-$LOCAL_PUBLIC_ADDR/require ;" \
| setkey -c
/sbin/route add -net $RENOTE_NETW gw $VIRTUAL_IP_ADDR
racoon -F -d -d -d
I think this is fixed in 188.8.131.52. Please test 184.108.40.206-45 when it becomes available and report back.
I will try.
I did not have computer lock up since an update to
