Installing tcpcrypt on FreeBSD

Tcpcrypt also requires OpenSSL >= 0.9.8, which is provided by the

headers, for building apps that use tcpcrypt's session ID.
The launch script starts tcpcryptd and sets up your firewall to send port 80 and 7777 packets through tcpcrypt:
With tcpcryptd running, open http://tcpcrypt.org/test.php to try it out.

for troubleshooting help.
launch_tcpcryptd.sh script sets up reasonable firewall rules, but for more complex setups, add your own
For example, this will divert all TCP packets to tcpcryptd (on divert port 666), and it will be rule #1.
ipfw 01 add divert 666 tcp from any to any
It's important that tcpcrypt divert rules are high on the list since tcpcryptd modifies the packet quite a lot, including sequence numbers, so other items (e.g., natd) may get confused if tcpcryptd doesn't do its magic first.
