strongSwan Installation Documentation

Live testing system

We have built a small test system to run strongSwan without installation or configuration. It is based on a UML kernel, two small OpenWRT images and should run on any x86 Linux system out of the box.

Distribution packages

There are currently packages for:

Compile yourself

Linux Kernel requirements

strongSwan should run on most distros' kernels. If you build your own kernel, include the required modules.

Building strongSwan

We have changed the buid system to autotools for the 4.x releases. There is a growing list of autoconf options available:

The build procedure is as with any autotools project:

 wget http://download.strongswan.org/strongswan-4.x.x.tar.bz2
 tar jxvf strongswan-4.x.x.tar.bz2; cd strongswan-4.x.x
 ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --<your-options>
 make
 sudo make install
