[Openswan Users] Encrypting Local Network: Host-to-Host connection

I tried to encrypt the connection between two immediate peers (same
broadcast domain):

conn ab

I observed that after connection establishment, the ARP request for the peer
is sent to (00:00:00:00:00:01) instead of (ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff).
The remote peer doesn't reply to the request. As a result peer is declared
dead by the initiator after the specified interval.

I tried with type=%direct (as mentioned in the openswan book by Paul), but
with openswan-2.4.8, it results in error (ipsec_auto: fatal error in "htoh":
unknown type "%direct").
Then I tried with leftnexthop=%direct, but observed the same ARP behavior.

Any clue?
