ISAKMPD | stopping, flushing, reloading


Stopping:
If isamkmpd is running in the foreground, ctrl+c does not flush existing connections (SAD's). Do a little ipsecctl -F
kill -9 kills only the daemon, the connections stay alive.
Use kill -TERM instead.
Or use the isakmpd FIFO user interface:
echo 'Q' > /var/run/isakmpd.fifo

Reloading:
kill -HUP
or
echo 'R' > /var/run/isakmpd.fifo
