As I had found this howto using the isakmpd.conf I went for it. But there's no problem. I'm already configuring ipsec.conf
The client gave me the following pre-shared key

When I load ipsec.conf with the ipsecctl -f /etc/ipsec.conf command, it shows the following error:

root@gw:~# ipsecctl -n -f /etc/ipsec.conf
/etc/ipsec.conf: 34: syntax error
ipsecctl: Syntax error in config file: ipsec rules not loaded
I searched a lot about and found nothing. I was trying to remove some characters and the command loaded the file.
Is there a limitation on characters when using the password?
