Hi All,

I have built Strongswan 5.8 from source on Ubuntu 18.04 and can't establish
a site-to-site VPN tunnel.

Tried both strongswan (swanctl,vici) and strongswan-starter (charon).
I got this record in syslog.log:

*no IKE config found for, sending NO_PROPOSAL_CHOSEN*

On my production Ubuntu strongwan package (Linux strongSwan U5.6.2) it
works with no issues and log records look differently

looking for peer configs matching[34.X.X.X]...24.X.X.X[somevpn.somedomain.tld]

In 5.8.0 it is looking for IKE config that matches local internal IP and
remote resolved IP.

I can attach my swanctl.conf and ipsec.conf+ipsec.secrets if it is
But for now I just want to know if it is only me.

Thank you
