Problem with CA Certificate in Client's Copmuter

Post by stefan.muller » Tue Oct 09, 2012 12:24 pm


When a client's computer tries to connect, there is an error output log:

Code: Select all

{time} -- Cannot load certificate file C:\user1.crt: error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory: error:20074002:BIO routines:FILE_CTRL:system lib: error:140AD002:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_use_certificate_file:system lib

I have rebuilt all the keys again. Without success.

I also have changed the client's openvpn config file like 20 times, without success.

What is going on badly? It's not a relative/absolute path problem.
I inlined the certs, quoted, and unqouted the paths, separated folders as /, \\, - and the same error appears

May it be because server's password is 8192bit and client can't support such large keys?
I really dont understand what is going on.

an extra question: Can I use DH of 2048bit, while server password 8192bit?
