How to edit precisely the source file to make the replacement ?
Notepad++ for example (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/) ?

This change will not fix your issue but it will help us to figure out what is going wrong..

After the replacement in line 1738, now I obtain this :

Code: Select all

# ./easyrsa build-ca nopass

Easy-RSA error:

Missing x509-types folder

That is exactly the result I was expecting.

Please change this (line:1745):

Code: Select all

		die "Missing x509-types folder"
to this:

Code: Select all

		die "Missing x509-types folder: $EASYRSA/x509-types"
and try once more..

Hello Richard,
The last result with modification : ' die "Missing x509-types folder: $EASYRSA/x509-types" '

Code: Select all

C:\PROGRA~1\OpenVPN\easy-rsa>easyrsa-start.bat

Welcome to the EasyRSA 3 Shell for Windows.
Easy-RSA 3 is available under a GNU GPLv2 license.

Invoke './easyrsa' to call the program. Without commands, help is displayed.

EasyRSA Shell
# ./easyrsa init-pki

Easy-RSA error:

Missing x509-types folder: /cygdrive/c/PROGRA~1/OpenVPN/easy-rsa/x509-types

EasyRSA Shell
#
You can see /cygdrive/c because I have Cygwin installed for several months.

I believe Easy-RSA shell does not understand your drive naming format.

Try a different disk or something..

If you find time to test then please test these two commands:

Code: Select all

pwd
echo $PWD
thanks.

For the OpenVPN client, I use a Android smartphone from which I've installed 'OpenVPN Connect' from Play Store.

The log gives :

Also, because you are using Windows, make sure you open Port UDP:1194 for openvpn , in your server firewall.
