I'm using RHEL 6.6 and openswan-2.6.32-37.el6.x86_64
I had a couple of questions related to ciphers:
1 - When I run the ipsec auto -status, I do see Blowfish listed as one of the available ciphers:
ipsec auto --status | grep BLOW
000 algorithm ESP encrypt: id=7, name=ESP_BLOWFISH, ivlen=8, keysizemin=40, keysizemax=448
However, when I plug this into my config file, the tunnel does not come up. Could you please let me know if Blowfish is something which is unsupported
2 - I believe esp cipher can be specified as follows
How does OpenSwan treat these 2 internally. Are they treated as 2 separate ciphers or the same one?
