Hi Tobias,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my request,  How can I get the
same behavior for Per connection via vici.
I believe dropping the connection when global initiator_only is marked as
yes is done in Charon code and not via iptables .
Please guide me on the per-connection option if it's configurable.
