Setting up strongSwan 4.3.2 (from the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS repositories), I managed to get it working fantastic for OSX/iPhone/iPad clients. Windows clients I kept getting "probable authentication failure (mismatch of preshared secrets?): malformed payload in packet".
So, I changed to using the Ubuntu 10.10 repository (strongSwan 4.5.0) and it now works with every client I have thrown at it (Windows 7, XP, OSX, etc). Just a heads up, and also in case anyone on this list has the power to backport (or etc) a fixed version of strongSwan since 10.04 is still the current server release for Ubuntu.
