Tried setting interfaces to the following:
interfaces="ipsec0=br0 ipsec1=vlan1"

When doing ipsec restart I get two (!) Unknown host

root at OpenWrt:~$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/ipsec restart
ipsec_setup: rmmod: ipsec: Success

ipsec_setup: Stopping Openswan IPsec...

ipsec_setup: Starting Openswan IPsec 2.4.6...

ipsec_setup: insmod: a module named ipsec already exists

ipsec_setup: ifconfig: inet: Unknown host

ipsec_setup: ifconfig: inet: Unknown host

replace gets;

root at OpenWrt:~$ ipsec auto --replace mycon
ipsec_auto: fatal error in "mycon": %defaultroute requested but not known

Any other idea?
