When I insert this line, this connection is not even started, like
there was a parsing error. In fact, looking at the "man ipsec.conf"
this option "ike=" is not even mentioned. It seems like it was
discontinued in this last version of OpenSwan...

I have all logs turned on...
...and in more than 100Mbytes of log (5 days) there is no presence of
any "aes" string.

I've read a lot of documentation, and as far as I know, IKE should
prepare many proposals to send to the server (along with the PSK) so
they could choose the that fits both. Problem is that it is not
preparing the proposals with AES, and I can't set anything with
"ike="... this is a bit frustrating... :-(

Do you have version 2.3.1 with this parameter being used?
