IPSec problem -- "write: invalid argument"



I am receiving an error message when executing the following command:

ipsecadm new esp -src [my-external-ip-number] -dst [his-external-ip-number]
  -tunnel [my-external-ip-number] [his-external-ip-number]
  -spi 1000 -enc des -auth sha1 -iv 1234567812345678
  -key 12345678 -authkey 1234567812345678

The message is:

 "write: invalid argument".  Not too helpful a message...

The same message appears if the -iv, -tunnel, and/or -auth options
are removed.


Anyone have an idea what this means?
