IPSEC_KLIPSDEBUG(5)						  [FIXME: manual]					       IPSEC_KLIPSDEBUG(5)

NAME
ipsec_klipsdebug - list KLIPS (kernel IPSEC support) debug features and level SYNOPSIS
ipsec klipsdebug cat/proc/net/ipsec_klipsdebug DESCRIPTION
/proc/net/ipsec_klipsdebug lists flags that control various parts of the debugging output of KLIPS and MAST, two of the IPsec stacks supported by Libreswan. At this point it is a read-only file. A table entry consists of: + a KLIPS debug variable + a '=' separator for visual and automated parsing between the variable name and its current value + hexadecimal bitmap of variable's flags. The variable names roughly describe the scope of the debugging variable. Currently, no flags are documented or individually accessible yet except tunnel-xmit. The variable names are: tunnel tunnelling code netlink userspace communication code (obsolete) xform transform selection and manipulation code eroute eroute table manipulation code spi SA table manipulation code radij radij tree manipulation code esp encryptions transforms code ah authentication transforms code rcv receive code ipcomp ip compression transforms code verbose give even more information, beware this will probably trample the 4k kernel printk buffer giving inaccurate output All KLIPS debug output appears as kernel.info messages to syslogd(8). Most systems are set up to log these messages to /var/log/messages. EXAMPLES
debug_tunnel=00000010. debug_netlink=00000000. debug_xform=00000000. debug_eroute=00000000. debug_spi=00000000. debug_radij=00000000. debug_esp=00000000. debug_ah=00000000. debug_rcv=00000000. debug_pfkey=ffffffff. means that one tunnel flag has been set (tunnel-xmit), full pfkey sockets debugging has been set and everything else is not set.

NAME
ipsec_klipsdebug - set KLIPS and MAST debug features and level. Other stacks are not supported. SYNOPSIS
ipsec klipsdebug ipsec klipsdebug --set flagname ipsec klipsdebug --clear flagname ipsec klipsdebug --all ipsec klipsdebug --none ipsec klipsdebug --help ipsec klipsdebug --version DESCRIPTION
Klipsdebug sets and clears flags that control various parts of the debugging output of Klips (the kernel portion of FreeS/WAN IPSEC). The form with no additional arguments lists the present contents of /proc/net/ipsec_klipsdebug. The --set form turns the specified flag on, while the --clear form turns the specified flag off. The --all form turns all flags on except verbose, while the --none form turns all flags off. The current flag names are: tunnel tunnelling code tunnel-xmit tunnelling transmit only code pfkey userspace communication code xform transform selection and manipulation code eroute eroute table manipulation code spi SA table manipulation code radij radij tree manipulation code esp encryptions transforms code ah authentication transforms code rcv receive code ipcomp ip compression transforms code verbose give even more information, BEWARE: a)this will print authentication and encryption keys in the logs b)this will probably trample the 4k kernel printk buffer giving inaccurate output All Klips debug output appears as kernel.info messages to syslogd(8). Most systems are set up to log these messages to /var/log/messages. Beware that klipsdebug --all produces a lot of output and the log file will grow quickly. The file format for /proc/net/ipsec_klipsdebug is discussed in ipsec_klipsdebug(5). EXAMPLES
klipsdebug --all turns on all KLIPS debugging except verbose. klipsdebug --clear tunnel turns off only the tunnel debugging messages. FILES

It really ought to be possible to set or unset selective combinations of flags. [FIXME: source] 10/06/2010 IPSEC_KLIPSDEBUG(8)
