  • Hi,

    just played a little bit with IPsec and got this error:

    It would help to see /var/etc/racoon.conf and also the ipsec section of your config. Something in the config is causing it to generate invalid syntax but without seeing the config and the invalid syntax (and the context around it), it's impossible to say what that might be.



  • Hi jimp,

    I just played with IPsec and after this error I just reverted all I did because of this error.
    Perhaps I did some wrong entries. I thought its just a simple syntax problem with a missing "{" or something else.

    Please do not spend to much time on this if my racoon.conf will not help you. I will post again I this error occures again and the will offer more details.
