#2220 closed enhancement (fixed)

ipsec-tools should be compiled with --enable-hybrid

Reported by: lucaf3rr@… Owned by: developers

Keywords: ipsec-tools racoon Cc:


ipsec-tools in kamikaze for Linux kernel 2.6 is compiled without the flag --enable-hybrid. This limits the types of connections available. Hybrid mode is required for successful interoperability with the Cisco VPN Client, for example.

The change to include --enable-hybrid in the Makefile has been tested successfully but should be included by default.

It seems that when using hybrid mode and the following configuration, together with Cisco VPN Client:

mode_cfg {
        network4;        # 1st address of VPN IPv4 pool
        pool_size 253;               # size of the VPN IP pool: 253 addresses
        auth_source system;          # validate logins against /etc/passwd
        dns4;            # IPv4 DNS server
        wins4;           # IPv4 WINS server
        banner "/etc/racoon/motd";   # Banner message for clients
        pfs_group 2;
        save_passwd on;

auth_source system, above, configures hybrid mode with /etc/passwd authentication. However, this authentication scheme depends on /etc/shadow. After some testing it can be verified that logins function if an /etc/shadow-file is created with the correct credentials.

Perhaps it is possible to patch ipsec-tools to use only /etc/passwd.

Just a reminder: Kamikaze has the possibility to enable shadow passwords from menuconfig.
