Hi Martin,

We need more standards-compliant. So please provide a patch on top of strongswan 5.1.3 which is compatible with the al4 version, since we will run into inter-operability issues with all other segws (7750, Cisco etc.).

What IKE implementation is running on the SeGW? Any more log details?

As said a few times, there are different ways how to handle that non-upstream cert-id-binding option, and not all are compatible. The
-al4 version is more standards-compliant, but incompatible to all other versions, including the 5.1.3 patch.
