A few weeks ago I wrote:

Did you copy some example configuration? 8-)
I have more information now...
For me, the reported connection attempt (which might just be a bogus
message) occurred under the circumstances:
1. The gateway machine was configured to use pkcipe.
2. A file containing a peer's public key and appropriate ipaddr and
ptpaddr entries was in /etc/cipe/pk/kit (I'm using Debian, and the
peer's name is kit)
3. On booting the gateway without a WAN connection, I got the following
series of messages on the console:
Starting encrypted tunnel: kit getaddr host'bigred.inka.de' invalid/not
getaddr: host 'blackforest.inka.de' invalid/not found
Are these just bogus connection failure messages?
