Clarification on how to convert certificate and key for android

Post by hicube » Sun Jun 13, 2021 10:59 am

I read this article: https://openvpn.net/faq/how-do-i-use-a- ... keychain/

I refer to the command:

Code: Select all

openssl pkcs12 -export -in cert -inkey key -certfile ca -name MyClient -out client.p12
part of the command is:

Code: Select all

-name MyClient
I am wondering if "MyClient" is part of the command "-name MyClient", or if "MyClient" is a variable that must be replaced by an appropriate value.

In the article nothing is written about it and the execution of the command, as reported, ends without errors. So I'm inclined to think it's part of the command string. Is that so?

If I'm wrong, what should I put in place of "MyClient" ?

MyClient can be any name you prefer

You should report this appalling omission to Openvpn Inc.
