Hi Martin,

Thanks for your answer.

It seems, I don't see any explanation on their websites.
It's definitely a big shame.

I'll try to patch my 4.6.2 release with this.
Does this patch was included in further release of strongswan? 5.0 ou 
greater for example?

In fact it would be difficult to determine identity of clients if 
windows isn't sending it at connection attempt.
