[strongSwan] Forcing all traffic from a specific user to use Strongswan

Some updates.
I'm now able to create the vti interface and I have an address assigned to
the vti

Result of "ifconfig"
vti0      Link encap:IPIP Tunnel  HWaddr
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP  MTU:1332  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

Can someone confirm I have now to route all the marked packets to this
interface to go through the VPN?
if the address assigned to the vti can be seen as a gateway for the VPN?

FYI, following files have been updated.

I already prepared the next step (after fixing the current issue), I've
> created the following script
> #! /bin/bash
>> export TABLE_ID="vpn"
>> export VPN_USER="vpn"
>> export VPN_INTERFACE="vti0"
>> export LAN=""
>> # Flush iptables rules
>> iptables -F -t nat
>> iptables -F -t mangle
>> iptables -F -t filter
>> # Mark packets from $VPN_USER
>> iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT ! --dest $LAN  -m owner --uid-owner
>> $VPN_USER -j MARK --set-mark 0x1
>> iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT ! --src $LAN -j MARK --set-mark 0x1
>> # Deny $VPN_USER to access other interfaces than lo
>> iptables -A OUTPUT ! -o lo -m owner --uid-owner $VPN_USER -J DROP
>> # Allow $VPN_USER to access lo and VPN interfaces
>> iptables -A OUTPUT -o lo -m owner --uid-owner $VPN_USER -j ACCEPT
>> iptables -A OUTPUT -o $VPN_INTERFACE -m owner --uid-owner $VPN_USER -j
>> # Allow response from $VPN_INTERFACE
>> iptables -A INPUT -i $VPN_INTERFACE -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED -j
>> # Masquarade packets on $VPN_INTERFACE
>> # Routing rules
>> ip route replace default via $GATEWAY table $TABLE_ID
>> ip route append default via dev lo table $TABLE_ID
>> ip route flush cache
