Hi Michael,

Thanks for your support, I have discovered and successfully solved the
problem! For the record: while setting up the connection I got these two
messages in the syslog:

Mar 02 22:31:09 [pluto] "zurich" #3: issuer cacert not found
Mar 02 22:31:09 [pluto] "zurich" #3: X.509 certificate rejected

I thought those were only warning since the IPSEC connection was
established successfully ("IPsec SA established tunnel mode"). However,
I couldn't reach any of the hosts on the other side. I then copied the
CA certificate to /etc/ipsec.d/cacerts and now it magically works.

BTW, this behaviour of OpenSwan violates my former university
professor's priniciple of the least possible astonishment. Reporting
success with a broken configuration is not something you expect.
