You can't have all certs and all ids come in via IKE. You need to point to one
cert on disk at least for the local end, so you need at least one of
leftcert=filename / rightcert=filename

You can specify that with rightid=, but you need to use %fromcert on the side
that you load from disk locally (eg with leftcert=filename)
