Description

Would be nice to have the dhcp plugin for strongswan in pfsense. This feature could be useful for a simple way to assign IP's using a dhcp server for IPSec mobile clients.

It needs to be configured as a compile option

https://wiki.strongswan.org/projects/strongswan/wiki/Dhcpplugin

Afterwards a GUI option in strongswan.conf needs to be created to use a DHCP broadcast or a specific IP address.

Did you create a feature request for it or did you just wish for it? Because I couldn't find anything on redmine about it :D

Looks like this option still needs to be ported from linux to BSD.

The https://github.com/strongswan/strongswan/blob/master/src/libcharon/plugins/dhcp/dhcp_socket.c uses linux headers so it will probably take some effort.
