I do not understand "pull" here. What is your intel mac running? linux?
or did you mean you used internet connect, and are writing the conns on
the linux server?

If it is the server, i tshould ALWAYS have rekey=no, because you cannot
rekey to an "%any" connection, the client has to initiate the rekey.

If this is the server, i would phase out one of those connections. Just
don't support non-updated XP machines with 1701, or just allow them all
using %any, but don't do both connections.
