    Does anyone have a tutorial on configuring a strongSwan ( IPsec client on OpenWrt (

    I'm running OpenWrt Chaos Calmer 15.05.1 with strongSwan 5.3.3-1 installed from the OpenWrt distribution packages.

    I have successfully tested an IPsec connection from a Windows 10 Enterprise system using Perfect Privacy VPN Manager behind this OpenWrt router.

    Example configuration files would be a good start. I have extracted the two certificates from the Perfect Privacy Cert Installer found on the Configuring IPSec/IKEv2 in Windows 10 page.

    Asus routers work great with Perfect Privacy, just keep in mind CPU and model (not all models work). Asus with Perfect Privacy setup guide:
