Hi Tobias,
Sorry, I forgot to cc the users at lists.strongswan.org in my last mail.
Also, now since I have moved to strongSwan 4.6.1, I really want to know how
I can use the ipsec.conf without relying on the front-end. I could not find
ipsec.conf in the build code. Please guide.

Thanks and Regards,
