[Openswan Users] Openswan multi profile problem

Hi all,

I am having an issue with Openswan on a Debian server.
Many tunnels have been working for a while on it.
Few days ago, I added a new profile, for a client remote access.
The other node (I have no control on it) is Openswan too.
When the client tries to connect, I observe a weird behaviour on my server.
The distant node tries to connect to all the profiles managed on my server,
and makes the ipsec service crash. Any other tunnel can be started. All the
profiles are corrupted. I have to reboot the server.

The client sent me the configuration on his side, which is quite the same
than mine.
I don't understand how it can try to connect with the other profle, since in
each profile is declared the public IP address of the other node. It is the
same for this profile, and the client's public IP is not used in any other

I hope I well explained the problem. Let me know if it is not clear.

Could anyone please help me on this issue?

Thanks in advance.
