Combining PSK and raodwarriors is asking for trouble. If this is openswan
to openswan, I recommend using authby=rsasigkey

No that is not true. You can swap them if you want. Pluto at startup will figure
out automaticly whether it is right or left.

However, telling pluto that both right and left can be anything is too difficult for pluto :)
If both ends are on dynamic IP, then you might be better of using some free dns servce
and changing them to right/left=whateverhost.someservicedns.com.
Or use right= since you use that below.

Are you saying our pluto daemon has a remote vulnerability we don't know about? :)
