IPSec on OpenVZ

Nick_ANick_A Member, Top Host, Host Rep
edited July 2012 in General

I have read that OpenVZ does not support IPSec, but I've also read some documentation that suggests it's possible with the right modules enabled on the host node. Are any other OpenVZ hosts able to successfully enable IPSec for their containers? What modules need to be enabled if so?

We tried installing a few modules and running "ipsec verify" inside a container. The script reported that ipsec should work, but it doesn't seem to be so far.

  • What is the point of using IPSec rather than just TUN/TAP? Just curious.

  • Nick_ANick_A Member, Top Host, Host Rep

    Someone wanted to use Openswan and IPSec on our containers.

    @AsadHaider yes

  • What's the point of getting openvz when you can get xen/KVM at the same price or just $1-2 more.

  • Nick_ANick_A Member, Top Host, Host Rep

    Oh boy, please don't take this thread in that direction :/

  • @cosmicgate: it depends on what you use it for.

    @Nick_A Yeah what's the problem? Just buy him a new node and plan this one for KVM allotments. You can write a new business plan in like an hour right?

    Didn't mean to be offensive. Didn't know you are a provider. Your comment didn't show while I was posting that.

  • Nick_ANick_A Member, Top Host, Host Rep

    No problem - just didn't want this thread to turn into a KVM vs Xen vs OpenVZ debate.

  • I'm so sorry to bump this 1 year old thread, but has anyone got it working on OpenVz? @Nick_A?

    No, I think it'll be a: "We can get OpenVZ for $7 for 4GB, you should be able to do KVM for $7 for 3GB and also $12/year for KVM 256/MB. Give me the plan now!".

    Had plenty of these received.

    Like constantly. Get something like "I'm currently with provider x, but always down. Would like to try you. I demand a 7 day trial of your service and for you to offer it at the same price but not go down."

  • SplitIceSplitIce Member, Host Rep

    I think we all get those @concerto49

    IpSec is network layer, includes headers, and spans between packets.

    only support 64bit system? install ipsec openswan directly and the kernel already support ipsec? do we need to reinstall OS to get kernel support?

    Correct it will only work on the same architecture as the host node (so 64bit).

    Right. If you're on 64bit you're fine. I've heard the xl2tpd (1.2.8) on ubuntu is partially broken so it may cause you issues. There isn't any reboots or tickets needed for ipsec support.
