I am working on two issues with establishing the ipsec connection

1. =22no suitable connection for peer=22 error.
2. the ipsec.secrets file is not working.

I changed the passphrase for %prompt to see if it was being read
and had to use ipsec secrets to get it to do anything (I am now using
the book by P. Wouters & K. Bantoft)

Xray:=7E=24 sudo ipsec secrets
Enter secret:
040 need passphrase for '/etc/ipsec.d/private/xray.exemplarassociates.key'
004 valid passphrase, private key loaded successfully

The authlog doesn't look the same as the one in the book, it doesn't
show changes to the various cert directories just the loading
secrets and loading private key file messages.

ipsec auto --listall
only shows the CA and 2 revoked certificates which is odd.

Xray:=7E=24 sudo ipsec verify

Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
