    Command:

    ipsec

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           ipsec command [argument...] ipsec --help
                 ipsec --version
                 ipsec --versioncode
                 ipsec --copyright
                 ipsec --directory
                 ipsec --confdir
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Ipsec invokes any of several utilities involved in controlling the
           IPsec encryption/authentication system, running the specified command
           with the specified arguments as if it had been invoked directly. This
           largely eliminates possible name collisions with other software, and
           also permits some centralized services.
    
           In particular, ipsec supplies the invoked command with a suitable PATH
           environment variable, and also provides IPSEC_DIR, IPSEC_CONFS, and
           IPSEC_VERSION environment variables, containing respectively the full
           pathname of the directory where the IPsec utilities are stored, the
           full pathname of the directory where the configuration files live, and
           the IPsec version number.
    
           ipsec --help lists the available commands. Most have their own manual
           pages, e.g.  ipsec_auto(8) for auto.
    
           ipsec --version outputs version information about Linux FreeS/WAN. A
           version code of the form ''Uxxx/Kyyy?? indicates that the user-level
           utilities are version xxx but the kernel portion appears to be version
           yyy (this form is used only if the two disagree).
    
           ipsec --versioncode outputs just the version code, with none of
           --version?s supporting information, for use by scripts.
    
           ipsec --copyright supplies boring copyright details.
    
           ipsec --directory reports where ipsec thinks the IPsec utilities are
           stored.
    
           ipsec --confdir reports where ipsec thinks the IPsec configuration
           files are stored.
    
    
    

    FILES

           /usr/local/lib/ipsec usual utilities directory
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           The following environment variables control where FreeS/WAN finds its
           components. The ipsec command sets them if they are not already set.
    
               IPSEC_EXECDIR  directory containing published commands
               IPSEC_LIBDIR   directory containing internal executables
               IPSEC_SBINDIR  directory containing ipsec command
    
           The provision of centralized services, while convenient, does
           compromise the original concept of making the utilities invocable
           directly as well as via ipsec.
