Racoon without compression - FreeBSD

Hi all, I'm trying to set up a VPN connection to a NetScreen VPN using racoon. I configured all of the settings (I think) to match those specified on the NetScreen, except for compression_algorithm. The only option for compression_algorithm given to me by racoon is deflate. The NetScreen VPN is configured with "Compression: None". Am I out of luck here? Please be sure to inclue me on any replies, as I am not subscibed to the list. TIA --Chris...

    Default Racoon without compression

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to set up a VPN connection to a NetScreen VPN using racoon.
    I configured all of the settings (I think) to match those specified on
    the NetScreen, except for compression_algorithm.

    The only option for compression_algorithm given to me by racoon is
    deflate. The NetScreen VPN is configured with "Compression: None".

    Am I out of luck here?

    Please be sure to inclue me on any replies, as I am not subscibed to the
    list.

    TIA

    --Chris

    No, compression is not needed for IPSec. The only compression
    algorithm racoon supports is defate, but that doesn't mean it won't run
    without compression. The settings in /etc/ipsec.conf are what tell
    FreeBSD's IPSec to use or not use compression. ESP is an encryption
    layer that you can enable in ipsec.conf and IPComp is a compression
    layer, if you only setup ESP then no compression takes place.

    I sense much NT in you.
    NT leads to Bluescreen.
    Bluescreen leads to downtime.
    Downtime leads to suffering.
    NT is the path to the darkside.
    Powerful Unix is.
