Hello Strongswan experts,

I am a strongswan-rookie and need some experts advice here.
I am trying to configure strongswan to use external auth script.
i followed below steps.

root at ampriyad-Inspiron-3558:/home/ampriyad/strongswan/strongswan-5.6.3#
./configure --enable-ext-auth

then i went ahead and did a
make followed by
make install.
When i lauched ipsec i got below run logs
Note that the plug in "ext-auth" did not gt loaded.

root at ampriyad-Inspiron-3558:/home/ampriyad/strongswan/strongswan-5.6.3#
ipsec start --debug-all --nofork
