Yeah, that error does not indicate a problem. If you want to make sure you
have a proper private key, run:

ipsec auto --listcerts

and make sure that your key has ', has private key' by it, like:

000 Aug 04 11:51:40 2004, count: 7
000        subject: 'x'
000        issuer:  'x'
000        serial:   xx
000        pubkey:   2048 RSA Key xxxxxxx, has private key

Yeah, that should certainly be possible, that's a fairly normal
