Question Bind Pluto (StrongSwan) On Specific Interface


I am using strongswan to set ipsec on my network. It works fine. But, if i run "ipsec start", pluto bind to all interfaces.
I managed to configure pluto to only bind on specific with "ipsec pluto --interface eth1", and then run "ipsec whack --listen". Unfortunately, this method won't read ipsec.conf and strongswan.conf where my SA resides.

Is there anyway that makes strongswan read ipsec.conf and strongswan.conf and make pluto only bind to specific interface ?
I already read the manual and i couldn't find any. The closest thing are the "interfaces" directive which only works if you use KLIPS modules (I use NETKEY).



bind, interface
