IPsec/L2TP is mostly used with IKEv1, not IKEv2. Please tell us what clients you're trying to use,
to make sure they try to use IKEv2, too.
L2TP is not handled by strongSwan. You need to use xl2tp for that. Most clients try to use transport mode
for the IPsec connection. Make sure your peer configuration has that specified. Also, plese make strongSwan
write a log  with the settings shown in , show us the log that was created and show us your ipsec.conf.
