[Openswan Users] IPSEC/Pluto terminating

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your help here.

I've downloaded 2.6.22 but before I compile and install will it upgrade
the existing installation and keep the tunnels already created or will
in install as new?

The reason for all the questions is that the Engineer who installed and
set this up is on holiday and I have never dealt with Openswan before.

I estimate many thousands have done it before and are doing it right

Definately upgrade to 2.6.22 or 2.6.23dr3. You'll have to build from
but that is a simple "make programs install".

With 2.6.14 it is likely a fixed bug.

You'd have to enable core dumps in /etc/profile on rhel I believe, then
with dump=/var/run/pluto if you use selinux. If you compiled from
you can do:

cd /root/openswan-2.6.23dr3/OBJ*/programs/pluto
gdb pluto
core /var/run/pluto/core.XXXX
bt full
