Coondog is a tool for configuring and controlling IPSec VPNs. It is not meant for advanced VPN use, as not all options and combinations of options are available. I have tried to make the application as easy to use as possible, sacrificing flexibility as a result. If you need more flexibility, you probably don’t need a GUI.

Coondog will work on most GNU/Linux Desktop environments which supports GTK applications.

You may notice a similarity between Coondog and another VPN tool for Mac OS X: IPSecuritas. This is purely intentional, The folk(s) at Lobotomo Software did a great job and I thought I would model Coondog after theirs.

The underlying system is the Racoon IKE daemon and setkey for manipulating the IPSec policies in the kernel. There are two programs:

* - this script runs with user-level priviledges and provides the GUI. With it the user creates/edits the VPN configurations and controls which VPNs are active.
* - This script is called by It runs SUID root and is used to run Racoon and setkey and do do other tasks that require root priviledges.
