I simply used the source package 2.6.19 on my CentOS 4.4 (Kernel 2.6.9) using , 

make programs 
make install

Installation done succesfuly but i didnt do any kernel changes and its giving me error on " service ipsec start" 

Failed to parse config setup portion of ipsec.conf

also with ipsec verify 

Version check and ipsec on-path                                 [OK]

   Looking for TXT in forward dns zone: rbl                 [MISSING]
   Does the machine have at least one non-private address?      [OK]
   Looking for TXT in reverse dns zone: 47.132.xxx.xxx.in-addr.arpa.    [MISSING]

Do i need to recompile the kernel for KLIPS, but it says no need for userland tools. I need to create ipsec vpn between to CentOS boxes.. 

Any suggestion
