They still do not match up.

The other end will have a log entry saying "sending informational payload
NO_PROPOSAL_CHOSEN". The line before that should be the reason why it
didnt pick the proposal.

What are your pfs settings? If you have pfs=no, try setting it to yes.
pfs is tricky because openswan/freeswan accepts pfs even with pfs=no,
but it might refuse an incoming connection made with pfs=no. And since
pfs=no just means "don't propose, but accept if proposed", you might
end up in a situation where initiator and responder flip and the
connection gets denied.
