Hi Paul,

Operating System       : Fedora Core 4
Linux Kernel version  : 2.6

>From the output of command "service ipsec start" and "ipsec verify", It
seems that we are using NETKEY only.
Still, We are having the problem "no IPsec-enabled interfaces found".
For more details about the entries that we have had added in the ipsec.conf,
I am attaching my first mail.

[root at localhost gganga]# service ipsec start
ipsec_setup: Starting Openswan IPsec 2.4.4...
ipsec_setup: insmod /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/kernel/net/key/af_key.ko 
ipsec_setup: insmod

[root at localhost gganga]# ipsec verify

That's strange.

iSee man ipsec.conf and man ipsec_manual. As you can see from the man page
manual, we haven't looked at it in so long it still says "freeswan".

What kernel are you using? On Linux 2.4 you will need to patch KLIPS into
the kernel. On 26. you may patch KLIPS in, or use the NETKEY stack that
comes with the 2.6 kernel. (af_key.ko),
