This module installs and configures IPsec transport connections and ipsec tunnels as well.


The simplest way to use 7u83-ipsec is to include the class:

include ipsec

What ipsec affects OPTIONAL

If it's obvious what your module touches, you can skip this section. For example, folks can probably figure out that your mysql_instance module affects their MySQL instances.

If there's more that they should know about, though, this is the place to mention:

  • A list of files, packages, services, or operations that the module will alter, impact, or execute.
  • Dependencies that your module automatically installs.
  • Warnings or other important notices.

Setup Requirements OPTIONAL

If your module requires anything extra before setting up (pluginsync enabled, etc.), mention it here.

If your most recent release breaks compatibility or requires particular steps for upgrading, you might want to include an additional "Upgrading" section here.

Beginning with ipsec

To encryp icmp traffic between two nodes using a pre-shared key, include this comfiguration:

include ipsec
ipsec::transport {"icmp_encrypt":
    remote_ip => '<ip_of_other_node>',
    proto => 'icmp',
    psk => 'secret'


This section is where you describe how to customize, configure, and do the fancy stuff with your module here. It's especially helpful if you include usage examples and code samples for doing things with your module.


Users need a complete list of your module's classes, types, defined types providers, facts, and functions, along with the parameters for each. You can provide this list either via Puppet Strings code comments or as a complete list in this Reference section.

  • If you are using Puppet Strings code comments, this Reference section should include Strings information so that your users know how to access your documentation.

  • If you are not using Puppet Strings, include a list of all of your classes, defined types, and so on, along with their parameters. Each element in this listing should include:

    • The data type, if applicable.
    • A description of what the element does.
    • Valid values, if the data type doesn't make it obvious.
    • Default value, if any.


This is where you list OS compatibility, version compatibility, etc. If there are Known Issues, you might want to include them under their own heading here.


Since your module is awesome, other users will want to play with it. Let them know what the ground rules for contributing are.

Release Notes/Contributors/Etc. Optional

If you aren't using changelog, put your release notes here (though you should consider using changelog). You can also add any additional sections you feel are necessary or important to include here. Please use the ## header.
