ThanksTobias.Also I am finding that I cannot set the local_addrs and remote_addrs in the dictionary that I pass to load_conn.Not sure whether this is also resolved or not?I get the error as 

vici.exception.CommandException: Command failed: b'unknown option: local_addrs, config discarded.
load_config = { 'vv' :  {'local_addrs' : '%any' , 'remote_addrs' : '', 'encap' : 'yes', 'mobike' : 'no', 'local' : { 'auth' : 'psk' } ,  'remote' : { 'auth' : 'psk' } , 'children' : { 'vv' : {'mode' : 'TRANSPORT'} }}}

This is what I am trying to load.  If I remove local_addrs and remote_addrs, it loads successfully.

A fix for this is already in master [1].
