Hi there. I'm having a little problem. I have installed a Debian Server using Racoon for IPSec VPN connections.
When I've tried to use de racoonctl command, this error appeared:

send:bad file descriptor

I've noticed that racoon generates a lot of PIDs. I don't know if this is normal or there is an error in the conf files. I'm attaching the output of"ps aux | grep racoon" command:

ps aux | grep racoon
