it seems that the Windows clients does not receive the IKE_AUTH
response from the strongSwan gateway probably because the large
certificate contained in the message leads to IP fragmentation of
the UDP-based IKE datagram the fragment get discarded somewhere
on the way:
sending end entity cert "C=NL, ST=Utrecht, L=Amersfoort, O=Globiq BV,
CN=<<full qualified host name>>"
generating IKE_AUTH response 1 [ IDr CERT AUTH EAP/REQ/ID ]
sending packet: from 10.10.0.125 to 188.8.131.52 (1468 bytes)
received packet: from 184.108.40.206 to 10.10.0.125 (1100
parsed IKE_AUTH request 1 [ IDi CERTREQ N(MOBIKE_SUP) CPRQ(ADDR DNS NBNS
SRV ADDR6 DNS6 SRV6) SA TSi TSr ]
received retransmit of request with ID 1, retransmitting response
As you can see the Windows client is retransmitting its original
IKE_AUTH request. What is the MTU in your network? Actually the IKE_AUTH
message with a size of 1468 bytes should not get fragmented with an
Ethernet MTU of 1500 bytes.
