Hello, we have recently setup a host-to-host connection using IKE1 with strongSwan on Linux and Windows using certificate authentication. We also have a requirement to add multiple other windows hosts to the configuration on strongSwan. We originally setup the conn with the rightID parameter set to the certificate DN of the Windows machines which worked fine. However we want to add a number of Windows hosts that use the same PKI. As we understand the left|rightID parameter is a single string parameter only, what would the best way of adding in this config? I understand the OID can be added or is it viable to add in multiple conn settings for each host and specify the DN?
