[Openswan Users] rekey=no && cannot install eroute

Hi Paul,

I double checked, rekey=no and auto=add is configured in ipsec.conf. Besides rekey=no is visible in log files:

Mar 15 11:04:53 ipsectest pluto[305]: "vpnk"[2] #2: IPsec SA expired (--dontrekey)

NAT-Port did not change. I use a DLINK DI-524 as NAT device and checked the available info there. All seems OK to me.

As to the question about ipsec on DUT. The problem is, it is 3rd party software/hardware which we are evaluating/testing, so we have limited information about the internal workings.

All I can do ATM is provide a logfile with plutodebug=all enabled, if necessary.

hmm it looks like there are multiple attempts for the same connection fighting. Can
you make sure you have rekey=no and auto=add, and start the ipsec on your "DUT" once?

I am not sure why openswan is not recognising this to be the same connection. Did the
NAT port change?
