Thank you. Watch for messages re: PF_ROUTE failed, like these:

21[KNL] adding PF_ROUTE route failed: Invalid argument
21[KNL] installing route failed: via (null) src %any dev vtnet1

My suspicion is, that the PF_ROUTE interfaces vary between Linux, OpenBSD and FreeBSD - and nobody really "ported" the code. Again: This is just a rough suspicion - I need to familiarize myself with the respective interfaces within Linux / OpenBSD.

Of course. And Raccoon works fine - it just sucks in so many other ways, that I'd rather use Strongswan :-)

Thanks -
