by default, openswan writes a log file to /var/log/secure.  I deleted the file and openswan doesn't seem to create a new one.  openswan was writing to it before though.  I need to view openswan's log.

I'm not sure about this, but i think openswan logs to the file trough syslog. To start it again first create the file with
touch /var/log/secure

and after that send the syslog process the HUP signal with
kill -HUP <pid of syslog>

The pid of syslog can be found with:

ps -ef | grep syslog

The biggest difference between M$ stuff and the rest ? Most stuff is secure by design, M$ stuff is secure by accident.

bash# killall gaim
killall: Don't shoot the messenger !

If we have /dev/powerbutton, what would touch /dev/powerbutton do ?
