I am encoutring issues to run the l2fwd.crypto sample application. I followed the tutorial step by step, but still not able to run the application. In detail, this is what I did:

1.downloded ip-sec from https://github.com/01org/intel-ipsec-mb/archive/v0.47.zip
2. Extracted it

4. make

5in the /build/.config i set CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_PMD_AESNI_MB=y

6. build DPDK again with the following commands:

   export RTE_SDK=<location of DPDK source code>/dpdk-16.04
  export DESTDIR=<location where I want DPDK to install>/install"
  export RTE_TARGET=x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc

  make clean install

7. Binded the crypto device to igb_uio module ( I also tries all the steps without this one)

8. build l2fwd-crypto application

9. run the application with the following commands:

/l2fwd-crypto -l 1,2 -n 4 --vdev="crypto_aesni_mb,socket_id=0,max_nb_sessions=128"  -- -p 0x3 --cdev SW --chain CIPHER_HASH --cipher_algo "aes-cbc" --auth_algo "sha1-hmac"

It doesn't work. The output says:  Unable to parse device "crypto_aesni_mb".

I am running ubuntu 16.04 LTS with kernel 4.10.0-40-generic.

Can you please help?
