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

SYNOPSIS
     racoon [-BdFv46] [-f configfile] [-l logfile] [-p isakmp-port]

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

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

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

     -F      Run racoon in the foreground.

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

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

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

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

     -4

     -6      Specifies the default address family for the sockets.

     racoon assumes the presence of kernel random number device rnd(4) at /dev/urandom.  Informa-
     tional messages are labeled info, and debugging messages are labeled debug.  You have to
     configure syslog.conf(5) if you want to see them in a logging file.

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

FILES
     /usr/local/v6/etc/racoon.conf  default configuration file.

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

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