  • I have a fresh installed latest snap on vmware where racoon will not start. Here is what is listed in the log.

  • what's line 36 in /var/etc/racoon.conf?



  • encryption_algorithm ;

    I failed to mention I restored my IPSEC settings from v1.2.3 backup.
    I had to go into each of my phase1 and click save. I also had to reset all the Phase2 encryption options, they were reset.

    Did you restore the entire config or just that section?

    Restoring just that section is not likely to work properly if it's from an older config version. Only restoring an entire config from a previous version is supported in that way.
