adding third real NIC does not solve the problem...

ipsec.conf with
  interfaces="ipsec0=eth0 ipsec1=eth1 ipsec2=eth2"
does not work while with
  interfaces="ipsec0=eth0 ipsec1=eth1" or interfaces="ipsec0=eth2 ipsec1=eth1"
works fine

does anyone have working configuration with more than 2 ipsecX interfaces and openswan-2.6.x?

we use kernel 2.6.20

openswan-2.4.13 on this server configured with 3 ipsecX startup without errors
