Can IPSEC be disabled?


We are new to Rancher and have an IPSEC? We want to run rancher locally on an internal secure network. We do not currently secure host to host traffic on this network. Can we disable Rancher IPSEC? Will we loose any Rancher functionality? If so then what.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.


I believe you cannot disable ipsec.

@davenport You could use VXLAN instead of IPSec. If you disable overlay networking how will containers, running on different hosts, communicate with each other? Rancher’s healthcheck feature depends on the overlay networking.
