That depends on what you are running it on.
If you are running it on Fedora or RedHat or a related distro based on
them such as CentOS or NST, then you would use "chkconfig ipsec on" to
set it to start at boot time and "system ipsec [re]start" to start it
manually. On Ubuntu or Debian or other distro, you would have to use
other commands. Same for SUSE. Same for Slackware. If you're not on a
Linux distro, you'll have to look that up for that OS.
