trac conversion errors fixed

1 9 Tobias Brunner
h1. config setup
2 1 Martin Willi
3 10 Tobias Brunner
h2. both daemons
4 9 Tobias Brunner
5 10 Tobias Brunner
_cachecrls = yes | *no*_
6 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. certificate revocation lists (CRLs) fetched via http or ldap will be cached in _/etc/ipsec.d/crls/_
7 1 Martin Willi
     under a unique file name derived from the certification authority's public key.
8 3 Martin Willi
9 10 Tobias Brunner
_charonstart = *yes* | no_
10 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. starts the IKEv2 charon daemon.
11 1 Martin Willi
12 10 Tobias Brunner
_plutostart = *yes* | no_
13 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. starts the IKEv1 pluto daemon.
14 1 Martin Willi
15 10 Tobias Brunner
_strictcrlpolicy = yes | ifuri | *no*_
16 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines if a fresh CRL must be available in order for the peer authentication based on RSA
17 9 Tobias Brunner
     signatures to succeed. IKEv2 additionally recognizes _ifuri_ which reverts to _yes_ if
18 9 Tobias Brunner
     at least one CRL URI is defined and to _no_ if no URI is known.
19 8 Tobias Brunner
20 10 Tobias Brunner
_uniqueids = *yes* | no | replace | keep_
21 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. whether a particular participant ID should be kept unique, with any new (automatically  keyed)
22 1 Martin Willi
     connection using an ID from a different IP address deemed to replace all old ones using that ID.
23 8 Tobias Brunner
     Participant IDs normally _are_ unique, so a new (automatically-keyed)  connection  using the same ID
24 9 Tobias Brunner
     is almost invariably intended to replace an old one. The IKEv2 daemon also accepts the value _replace_
25 9 Tobias Brunner
     which is identical to _yes_ and the value _keep_ to reject new IKE_SA setups and keep the duplicate
26 1 Martin Willi
     established earlier.
27 1 Martin Willi
28 10 Tobias Brunner
h2. IKEv1 pluto daemon only
29 8 Tobias Brunner
30 10 Tobias Brunner
_crlcheckinterval = *0s* | <time>_
31 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. interval in seconds. CRL fetching is enabled if the value is greater than zero.
32 1 Martin Willi
     Asynchronous, periodic checking for fresh CRLs is currently done by the IKEv1 Pluto daemon only.
33 3 Martin Willi
34 10 Tobias Brunner
_keep_alive = *20s* | <time>_
35 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. interval in seconds between NAT keep alive packets.
36 1 Martin Willi
37 10 Tobias Brunner
_nat_traversal = yes | *no*_
38 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. activates NAT traversal by accepting source ISAKMP ports different from udp/500 and being able
39 10 Tobias Brunner
     of floating to udp/4500 if a NAT situation is detected.  Used by IKEv1 only, NAT traversal is
40 1 Martin Willi
     always being active in IKEv2.
41 3 Martin Willi
42 10 Tobias Brunner
_nocrsend = yes | *no*_
43 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. no certificate request  payloads will be sent.
44 1 Martin Willi
45 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11initargs = <args>_
46 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. non-standard argument string for PKCS#11 C_Initialize() function; required by NSS softoken.
47 1 Martin Willi
48 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11module = <lib>_
49 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the path during run-time to a dynamically loadable PKCS#11 library. Overrides any
50 10 Tobias Brunner
     path defined during compile-time using the --pkcs11-module configure option.
51 9 Tobias Brunner
52 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11keepstate = yes | *no*_
53 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. PKCS#11 login sessions will be kept during the whole lifetime of the keying daemon.
54 1 Martin Willi
     Useful with  pin-pad smart card readers where PINs cannot be cached. 
55 6 Martin Willi
56 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11proxy = yes | *no*_
57 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. Pluto will act as a PKCS#11 proxy accessible via the whack interface.
58 3 Martin Willi
59 10 Tobias Brunner
_plutodebug = *none_* | <debug list> | _all_
60 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. how much Pluto debugging output should be logged. _none_ means  no  debugging output
61 9 Tobias Brunner
     while _all_ means full output.  Otherwise only the specified types of output separated by white space) are enabled;
62 9 Tobias Brunner
     Available debugging types are _control controlmore crypt dns emitting klips lifecycle natt oppo parsing private raw_.
63 9 Tobias Brunner
     Recommended setting is _plutodebug=control_.
64 9 Tobias Brunner
65 10 Tobias Brunner
_plutostderrlog = <file>_
66 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. Pluto will not use syslog, but rather log to stderr, and redirect stderr to <file>.
67 3 Martin Willi
68 10 Tobias Brunner
_postpluto = <command>_
69 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. shell command to run after starting Pluto (e.g., to remove a decrypted copy of the [[IpsecSecrets|ipsec.secrets]] file).
70 9 Tobias Brunner
     It's run in a very simple way; complexities like I/O redirection are best hidden within a script.
71 5 Martin Willi
     Any output is redirected for logging, so running interactive commands is difficult unless they use
72 1 Martin Willi
     _/dev/tty_ or equivalent for their interaction.
73 9 Tobias Brunner
74 10 Tobias Brunner
_prepluto = <command>_
75 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. shell command to run before starting Pluto (e.g., to decrypt an encrypted copy of the [[IpsecSecrets|ipsec.secrets]] file).
76 9 Tobias Brunner
     It's run in a very simple way; complexities like I/O redirection are best hidden within a script.
77 3 Martin Willi
     Any output is redirected for logging, so running interactive commands is difficult unless they use
78 3 Martin Willi
     _/dev/tty_ or equivalent for their interaction.
79 9 Tobias Brunner
80 10 Tobias Brunner
_virtual_private = <networks>_
81 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines private networks using a wildcard notation.
82 1 Martin Willi
83 10 Tobias Brunner
h2. IKEv2 charon daemon only
84 9 Tobias Brunner
85 10 Tobias Brunner
_charondebug = <debug list>_
86 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. how much Charon debugging output should be logged. A comma-separated list containing
87 3 Martin Willi
     _type level_ pairs  may  be specified, e.g: _dmn 3, ike 1, net -1_.  Acceptable values for
88 9 Tobias Brunner
     types are _dmn, mgr, ike, chd, job, cfg, knl, net, enc, lib_ and the level is one of
89 10 Tobias Brunner
     _[-1,  0,  1,  2,  3,  4]_ (for silent, audit, control, controlmore, raw, private).
