Hi Martin,

I am using the default strongswan(strongswan 4.1.4) supported by wrlinux. I
wanted to test the functionality for this version.

Is there anything to do with Netlink-XFRM for this issue.
Please find the console logs
wrlinux:/root> ip xfrm
Usage: ip xfrm XFRM-OBJECT { COMMAND | help }
where  XFRM-OBJECT := state | policy | monitor
wrlinux:/root> ip xfrm state
Cannot open netlink socket: Protocol not supported

Please advise
