Thanks for the response - unfortunately I¹m not sure what you mean - I
have been testing this in AWS on RHEL6.6 with no firewalls or filtering
between the nodes.  If I run openswan on one node and not the other, no
comms are possible between the nodes.  Is it possible to configure
openswan to revert to non encrypted comms if one nodes software is down?
