RACOON(8) BSD System Manager’s Manual RACOON(8)
racoon - IKE (ISAKMP/Oakley) key management daemon
racoon [-BFvdL46] [-f configfile] [-l logfile] [-p isakmp-port]
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).
-F Run racoon in the foreground.
Use configfile as the configuration file instead of the default.
Use logfile as the logging file instead of syslogd(8).
Listen to ISAKMP key exchange on port isakmp-port instead of the
default port number, 500.
Use isakmp-natt-port for NAT-Traversal port-floating. The default
-v The flag causes the packet dump be more verbose, with higher
-d Increase the debug level. Multiple -d will increase the debug
level even more.
-L Include file_name:line_number:fuction_name location in all mes-
-6 Specifies the default address family for the sockets.
racoon assumes the presence of kernel random number device rnd(4) at
/dev/urandom. Informational 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.
The command exits with 0 on success, and non-zero on errors.
/usr/local/v6/etc/racoon.conf default configuration file.
