passphrase in /etc/init.d client start script

Post by scheruga » Fri Aug 19, 2011 5:10 pm

I have a client start script that works perfect as long as the key do not have a passphrase.

Otherwise the script tells me
"Enter Private Key Password:"
but stops without letting me allow to enter a passphrase.

The result is that the client VPN connection is not established.

Does anyone know how to handle this?

hi there,

your client has locked his key with password...


during cert creation someone entered password to protect the key
