Hi Andreas,

the mechanism is different. Just add your connection to ipsec.conf
or edit an existing connection and then type

   ipsec update

and any changes will be pushed to pluto and/or charon (the IKEv2
charon daemon currently has the restriction that changes do not
have an effect on connections that are currently up).
