Not directly, but it could be related.

Your config?  Old/invalid credentials?  In any case, read the log during
start up and check for errors.

This means you don't have a local identity (leftid) set and that the
daemon falls back to using the IP address as identity (as responder IDr
is the local identity).  However, for that particular identity no
certificate and private key is found.  If you configured leftcert and
the certificate was loaded successfully the local identity should
default to that certificate's subject DN, so maybe the certificate was
not loaded.  Again, check the log when credentials/configs are loaded
for errors.
