I've tried it, but it is unfeasible, AFAICT. If one side of
the VPN goes down, even you restart it (manually or
otherwise) it will have forgotten the key and won't be able
to authenticate itself with the surviving peer.
Mine will reconnect by itself, and probably does it better
than any external mechanism. I'm running the 1.4.5 version
That's curious. I've been working with the latest release
(1.5.4). In my case, in one side goes down it is unable to
reconnect unless the other side is restarted too. For this
reason I stated that "it is unfeasible, AFAICT".
that comes with RedHat and have been reluctant to update
because it has been so robust. I have a central machine that
has about a dozen instances started with different options
files and it stays up for many months at a time while the
remote ends go through all the typical internet connectivity
issues and are rebooted/replaced periodically. I never have
to do anything special to make it reconnect after an outage.
But, this is cipe, not pkcipe.
I wonder if the author(s) can shed some light on this topic.
