 Subject:  pb26 racoon error - failed to bind (Address already in use)
 Date:  Sat, 24 Jan 2004 22:24:12 -0000
Hi,

I just upgraded to the very latest release and after rebooting noticed some
racoon errors in the log file:

racoon: ERROR: isakmp.c:1350:isakmp_open(): failed to bind (Address already
in use).

Followed by:

racoon: ERROR: isakmp.c:1373:isakmp_open(): no address could be bound.

I'm using DHCP on the WAN interface and after getting another lease the logs
report:

dhclient: bound to xxxx -- renewal in 25 seconds.

Jan 24 22:14:09 racoon: INFO: isakmp.c:1358:isakmp_open(): 127.0.0.1[500]
used as isakmp port (fd=6) 
Jan 24 22:14:09 racoon: INFO: isakmp.c:1358:isakmp_open(): 10.0.1.1[500]
used as isakmp port (fd=7) 
Jan 24 22:14:09 racoon: INFO: isakmp.c:1358:isakmp_open(): xxxx[500] used as
isakmp port (fd=9) 
Jan 24 22:14:09 racoon: INFO: isakmp.c:1358:isakmp_open(): 10.0.0.1[500]
used as isakmp port (fd=10)

Should I assume that everything is therefore okay?

Cheers,

Frans

P.S. I used to get the same "failed to bind (Address already in use)" error
on older versions of m0n0wall from the dns forwarder but somehow that got
fixed.
