OpenSwan is fundamentally different to OpenVpn as in OpenSwan (IPSEC)
there is no notion of a 'client'. You could probably call this an initiator.

You can define multiple interfaces on a single host and each interface
can have multiple connections. As most operations are handled in kernel
space, as opposed to OpenVPN, where most things are done in user space,
there is typically no need for multiple instances.

What exactly do you want to achieve?
