[strongSwan] Setup client using main mode/draft-ietf-ipsec-nat-t-ike-02

I did the changes you suggested.
I now get a "connection 'cnx' established successfully.
So it seems that the client and server now understand eachother.

I expected to have a new network interface.
Some threads are talking of an "ipsec" interface
but I have none.
So I just don't know how to use the connection.
Can you tell me what I have to do now
or point me to the right doc?

Thanks again!
