If I comment out the line "key <128bitkey>" in the options file, I get the
message "ciped-cb: missing argument: key", which is consistent with
what I can find in the cipe-1.5.4 sources.
I can't find the message "bringing up interface cipcb0: missing required
cipe key in /etc/cipe/options.cipcb0" in the sources, so I assume you are
using the Red Hat (which?) version, and the message must be generated by the
ifup-cipcb script when it can't find a line starting with "key". In that
case the script exits and doesn't bring up the cipe interface, which
explains why there is no "missing argument" error message.
Somehow the ifup-cipcb script finds the "key" line in the options file (it
does a grep "^key[ ]" in the file /etc/cipe/options.cipcb0) and
ciped does not.
ciped does read the options file (but is it the same file?), but somehow
doesn't recognise the "key" keyword.
However, I am not too familiar nor happy with the "Red Hat scriptology"
(aiming to make things easier, but when things go wrong ending up with a
mess of spaghetti..).
I suggest to bring up cipe manually (as root):
# /usr/sbin/ciped-cb debug -o /etc/cipe/options.cipcb0
and see what happens..
[Specifying the "debug" option will dump all the options.]
May be we get a clue what is wrong.
