I am using strongswan 5.0.3 on ubuntu 12.04 server, and I used
"--enable-eap-tls --enable-eap-ttls" before make. the compilation and
installation was successful, and I could see ttls plugin has been installed:
/usr/local/lib/ipsec/plugins$ ls -1|grep ttls

but it seems strongswan doesn't load eap-ttls (eap-tls does got loaded)

I used default strongswan.conf, Could you tell me how to load eap-ttls?
