When using the attr-sql [1] pool backend, you can use "ipsec pool
--leases" on the server to list all leases. When using a pool directly
defined in ipsec.conf, "ipsec leases" lists all IP leases.

If you need that information on the client itself, you'd have to read
the IP directly from the interface, parse "ipsec statusall" or extend
the stroke (or any other) interface by such a function.
