NAME

ipsec__plutorun - internal script to (re)start pluto on old SYSV initscript systems

DESCRIPTION

_plutorun is called by _realsetup to configure and bring up pluto(8). It invokes pluto, and watches to makes sure that pluto is restarted if it fails, as the SYSV initscripts do not provide a restart facility. When other init systems are used, such as systemd or upstart, _plutorun is not used.
