from your mail I see that you tried to use a 'pure' ipsec connection.

In my experience L2TP is to much hazzle to set up.

iOS4 connecting to strongSwan works fine and lately a good guide was 
posted in the wiki [1].

Apple itself listed the requirements for an ipsec tunnel in [2].

Following these points you should be able to create a connection between 
your iOS4 device and your server.
