Hi Martin,

Unfortunate the Aruba log is very poor and the errors does not give any
notion on what could be wrong.

This gives ERR_IPSEC_NO_MAP.

It's very unsure what fails here, we see an authentication error from
the radius but unsure what fails, if its the ID to certificate map or
the certificate itself.

Is there any way to get more debug information out of strongSwan for the
EAP-TLS authentication?

Also, if I do not specify an leftid the DN from the certificate is used
and it fails even faster. I have UTF-8 characters in my DN, has there
been problems with that in strongSwan before? My DN is not displayed
correctly in the terminal from the strongSwan output but everything
looks ok when checking the certificate with openssl x509.
