if you want an IKEv1 connection then please define
since ikev2 is the default.

This conn definition should be catching *all* requests because left is defined as %defaultroute (ipsec.conf manpage says this means "any interface"), and right is defined as %any which means it can originate from any IP address. With `ipsec statusall` I see:

>> I can't help but feel like I am very close but missing something very basic. With my configuration above, I don't see how there is "no connection has been authorized with policy=PSK" because `ipsec statusall` seems to be telling a different story. But maybe I am reading it wrong. Any advice?
