[strongSwan] notifying watcher failed: Broken pipe

Hello all,

I am having a problem getting a site-to-site connection working using PSK and I was hoping you'd be able to offer some help.  I am using strongSwan 5.2 (U5.2.0/K3.14.16) on openWRT Chaos Calmer (Linux OpenWrt 3.14.16 #7 SMP Tue Jan 26 18:17:28 EST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux) running on a gateworks 5300 (http://www.gateworks.com/product/item/ventana-gw5300-network-processor) which has a Freescale i.MX6 SoC.  I have two of the GW5300s each with this configuration.

I have them both set up using the example here: https://www.strongswan.org/uml/testresults/ikev2/net2net-psk/. All of the ipsec configuration files have been copy and pasted from the example into the corresponding configuration file on each of the 5300s.

Here is a dump of my log when I start ipsec: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14691246/ The error I am getting is: "authpriv.info ipsec_starter[16675]: notifying watcher failed: Broken pipe"

The names I am using come from the example I pasted above.

Alice can ping Moon
Bob can ping Sun
Moon and ping Sun over the eth0 connection

Does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong?
