[strongSwan] Ipsec server and l2tp client are both behind NAT

Hi all,

Currently I'm using strongswan and my ipsec server and client are both
behind NAT, connected through internet.
The problem is: l2tp client through transport mode cannot establish
the connection.

I have enabled the nat transport option and set nat_traveral to yes.

So is this behavior intended? or maybe a potential bug?

ps: I also tried openswan, and it works well in such a situation.

best regards,
Vincent Li
