Otherwise strongSwan will not

Did you solve this? I have the same problem and have been poring over
strongswan logs, sniffer packets, etc. My strongswan gateway cert has the
required extensions and there does not seem to be any errors as seen from
the gateway logs. It is the win 7 client that is causing problems. And of
course other than error 13806 "IKE authentication credentials are
unacceptable" windows does not give any further useful info.
Any info would be appreciated.
