Internet Key Exchange Connect

SYNOPSIS

qikec [-r name] [-u username] [-p password] [-a]

DESCRIPTION

The qikec Qt GUI application provides a simple interface for users to interact with iked(8) ( Shrew Soft IKE Daemon ). This interface allows a user to control an IPsec VPN Client connection with a remote gateway. The parameters used for the connection are described in a Site Configuration file. For more information about managing Site Configuration files, please see the ikea(1) man page. Please note, the ikec application is not typically started directly by a user but as a sub-process of the ikea(1) Qt GUI application.

The options are as follows:

name
Specify the Site Configuration name.
username
Specify the Xauth username for the connection.
password
Specify the Xauth password for the connection.
Automatically initiate the connection.
