After doing some tests, I found that if I add the
rightsubnet=vhost:%no,%priv parameter and restart openswan, the connection
is not added on startup and the message "fatal error in "roadwarrior-l2tp":
type=transport incompatible with rightsubnet" is logged to
/var/log/messages. I didn't notice this earlier because it seemed to me that
pluto logged all his messages to the authpriv facility.
The message seems to be generated by the /usr/libexec/ipsec/auto shell
script. Strange enough, this script is not changed in 2.3.1 from 2.3.0, and
on 2.3.0 I have connections with type=transport and the rightsubnet
parameter happily running. I'm going to make some tests.
