 Subject:  Still, IPSec VPN with Dyndns hosts
 Date:  Fri, 12 Nov 2010 13:12:51 +0800
Hello specialists,

since there are many topics out there with a lot of people having the same problem, is there a way
to completely restart racoon at a certain time of the day?
As many threads say in the end, deactivate VPN and reactivate it or just click save overcomes the
problem, but is not really comfortable.
By the way, even deleting the security policy doesn't help. Monowall still tries to initiate phase
one with the old IP address after an address change.
Shorter lifetimes etc. don't help, static address on one end doesn't, Key and Policy delete doesn't.
Only bouncing racoon helps.
Even if this thread/mail leads to nowhere somebody might pick it up and stop searching for hints
because with 1.32 only the initial tunnel and the key exchange works perfectly, but not after an
address change.
If somebody has it up and running with daily changing IP addresses, two dynamic sites and no manual
intervention after the change please let me know how you did it. Seems like a racoon problem because
pfsense has the same issue.
Maybe put a checkbox and a start time in the advanced settings to periodically restart racoon? I
think it would help a lot of people out there to overcome the issue with dynamic IPs.
By the way, I really think that it is very generous of the developers of Monowall to give it away
for free, since this is the only issue I have with it.

Best Regards
