We could guess, but it would be very helpful if you’d post your swanctl.conf and the complete swanctl –initiate command that you’re using.

Subject: [strongSwan] initiate failed: missing configuration name


I've setup a IKEv2 PSK configuration in /etc/swanctl/swanctl.conf and loaded connection successfully. But when running the command  "sudo swanctl --initiate" the error message "initiate failed: missing configuration name" is displayed. What do I need to provide?
