Finally I think  I found the problem.

Basically I want to have configuration like


and as we can see in this test case DNS are passed to client and
installed via resolvconf.

But in my configuration I have "resolve" plugin turned off, and make
changes regarding DNS with updown script.

But with swanctl config DNS environment (PLUTO_DNS4_1) variables are not
passed to updown script :( and this made problem in my configuration.

These variables are removed intentionally in swanctl  ?

No yak too dirty; no dumpster too hollow.
