Hi list

I connect to strongswan 4.6.1 with a mobile vpn client and if the internet connection is sudden broken, I can not reconnect until strongswan declair the connection as dead. In this case I need to wait 180 seconds. I configured the connection with ModeCfg and rightsourceip.

When I reconnect before the dpd, I see in the Log:
pool 'roadwarrior' is full, unable to assign address
acquiring address from pool 'roadwarrior' failed

How can I force, that the old state is overwritten with the new connection.
