Hi Poonam,

What's a NULL IDr?

As responder, you always have to send an IDr in IKE_AUTH, it is required
by IKEv2. As initiator, charon sends an IDr only if it is defined by
"rightid" (or inherited from "right" by default). You can omit the
payload if it contains an %any ID or any form of a wildcard. Try to set
rightid=%any to omit IDr on the initiator.
