When pluto doesn't know wether it i s left or right, it gives the following error:
"we have no ipsecN interface for either end of this connection"
This error has become somewhat confusing when using the native 2.6 stack, since
there are enver ipsecN devices.
I suggest we change it to:
"We cannot identify ourselves for either end of this connection"
What I do not know, is whether (when using KLIPS) this error can also happen
when we DO know which IP address we are, but in fact we have a wrong interfces=
line, and indeed just not an ipsecN device for that ip address. If the latter
can also happen, then we might need to add:
"or we have no ipsecN interface for a recognised end (when using KLIPS)".
I don't think we can see at that point fairly easily whether we are using KLIPS
The error appears in connections.c and rcv_whack.c.
