Hello Martin,

Thanks for the quick reply!

From your reply I understand that charon-cmd keeps running while the tunnel is active. If so, may I suggest that you say so explicitly in the man page? I thought that the command would stop as soon as the tunnel was established, and I think I'm not the only one.

Similarly, from you reply I understand that one can establish multiple tunnels with a single charon-cmd? If so, it is also worth saying explicitly, I think.

Some additional examples in the man page would be very helpful too!

Anyway, charon-cmd looks very helpful for my problem. Thanks for adding it!
