I'm installing freeswan on redhat 7.3 (with all updates).

I have installed the module, but am unable to complete a required step using pgp.

The instruction (trying to add a signature of some type) is:

"For RedHat 7.x systems, you'll need to add it to your PGP keyring:

pgp -ka freeswan-rpmsign.asc"

So do I have to download pgp? It's not mentioned in the instructions that I could see. I do have a command "pgpring" on my system. and I tried it instead of pgp, but no success.

I'm not familar with RH's freeswan, but freeswan does not require pgp itself.
There is a x.509 patch for freeswan, which should work with pgp keys too, but also does not require pgp for running freeswan (IPSEC)

change pgp for gpg or download this rpm

OR the best is download the source and compiling

This is on the back burner. But standby. I'll eventually close it out.
