     racoon -- IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management daemon

     racoon [-46BdFLVv] [-f configfile] [-l logfile] [-P isakmp-natt-port] [-p isakmp-port]

     racoon speaks the IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management protocol, to establish security associ-
     ations with other hosts.  The SPD (Security Policy Database) in the kernel usually triggers
     racoon.  racoon usually sends all informational messages, warnings and error messages to
     syslogd(8) with the facility LOG_DAEMON and the priority LOG_INFO.  Debugging messages are
     sent with the priority LOG_DEBUG.	You should configure syslog.conf(5) appropriately to see
     these messages.


     -6      Specify the default address family for the sockets.

     -B      Install SA(s) from the file which is specified in racoon.conf(5).

     -d      Increase the debug level.	Multiple -d arguments will increase the debug level even

     -F      Run racoon in the foreground.

     -f configfile
	     Use configfile as the configuration file instead of the default.

     -L      Include file_name:line_number:function_name in all messages.

     -l logfile
	     Use logfile as the logging file instead of syslogd(8).

     -P isakmp-natt-port
	     Use isakmp-natt-port for NAT-Traversal port-floating.  The default is 4500.

     -p isakmp-port
	     Listen to the ISAKMP key exchange on port isakmp-port instead of the default port
	     number, 500.

     -V      Print racoon version and compilation options and exit.

     -v      This flag causes the packet dump be more verbose, with higher debugging level.

     racoon assumes the presence of the kernel random number device rnd(4) at /dev/urandom.

     The command exits with 0 on success, and non-zero on errors.

     /etc/racoon.conf  default configuration file.

     ipsec(4), racoon.conf(5), syslog.conf(5), setkey(8), syslogd(8)

     The racoon command first appeared in the ``YIPS'' Yokogawa IPsec implementation.

     The use of IKE phase 1 aggressive mode is not recommended, as described in
