I see your point. The thing is now I have removed on both ends the
In addition to that, should I use auto=route on both ends ?

My last experience with auto=route unfortunately showed that it was "not
working", meaning that no matter what I did to try to trigger tunnel
creation by sending traffic to the other peer, the tunnel was never
started automatically, hence the auto=start.
