Unable to find openssl config

Post by beaksdale » Sat Apr 23, 2016 5:38 pm

Hi,
I'm new to OpenVPN and I'm following the HOWTO guide provided for setting up on Windows (I'm running Windows 10). However when I get to the key generation I'm getting stuck, the first issue which I worked around was that the script clean-all wasn't creating a keys folder (I had to manually set a keys directory as it wasn't picking up the one I set in the vars script) but when I run build-ca I get: "WARNING: can't open config file: /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf". I tried reinstalling OpenVPN to make sure that I checked the box to install the OpenSSL utilities and I have the service running when I'm running the scripts though even I can see that looks like a linux reference. Any help?
Cheers

You are using an older version of easyrsa .. try this one:
https://github.com/OpenVPN/easy-rsa/rel ... v3.0.0-rc2

Great thanks I downloaded 3 different versions of this but none of them include the SH POSIX interface file.
