[Openswan Users] has interfaces= syntax changed in 2.6.18 ?

Well, I'm running netkey (Fedora 9 included) in case that is a contributing
factor, but the same line you have chokes on mine...perhaps a bug?

Not sure if this is related, but the pluto debug parameter crypto which
worked fine in an earlier version, causes v2.6.18 to complain with:
Oct 15 18:46:49 firewall ipsec__plutorun: /usr/local/libexec/ipsec/pluto:
unrecognized option '--debug-crypto'

All I did was upgrade openswan and that line in the config caused problems
(so I removed for now).

It works for me:


[root at bofh openswan-2.6.18]# ipsec --version
Linux Openswan 2.6.18 (klips)
See `ipsec --copyright' for copyright information.

[root at bofh openswan-2.6.18]# ipsec setup start
ipsec_setup: Starting Openswan IPsec 2.6.18...
