I am having difficulty getting "retransmission timeout" to work with my own
settings. I set "retransmit_tries" to  "3" but I am still seeing 5
retransmissions before it gives up, which is the default value.

Below is my strongswan.conf. Please advice if there is any other areas I
need to re-configure.

charon {
         retransmit_tries = 3
         retransmit_timeout = 10
         retransmit_base = 1

 plugins {
    eap-radius {
        server =
        secret = testing123
        nas-id = mynas
        filter_id = yes
