Hi all,

First at all,
I come from Non-english country and my english is bad ,
I try to explain my question in english on my best

I try to install Openswan 2.4.4 on Debian linux  Kernel 2.6.13
I follow openswan document to complie openswan source

# make programs
#make install
it's OK!

and start ipsec
# /etc/init.d/ipsec start
ipsec_setup: Starting Openswan IPsec U2.4.4/K2.6.13...

Here is my problem
When I try to verify ipsec status
I got these messages

# ipsec verify
Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
Version check and ipsec on-path                                 [OK]
Linux Openswan U2.4.4/K2.6.13(netkey)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel                            [OK]
Checking for RSA private key (/etc/ipsec.secrets)               [OK]

In /var/run/pluto/ directory have  "pluto.ctl",
but  I stop ipsec,this file(pluto.ctl) still in there and got these message

ipsec_setup: Stopping Openswan IPsec...
ipsec_setup: Removing orphaned /var/run/pluto/pluto.pid:

I search on Google in many days  but can't find best solution to solve this
If this question have been discussed in many times,I  apologize

Thanks for ur help!
