Hi Andy,

On x86, the client uses its (internal?) IP address to authenticate. This
is not allowed, as strongSwan requires that the identity is contained in
the certificate, either as subject or as subjectAltName.

I think this is the known regression coming with unpatched Windows 8
builds: the Agile VPN client uses a wrong identity.

This regression has been fixed by Microsoft using a hotfix. Have you
double-checked that this box has all Windows updates installed?
