x509-username-field error

Post by dahai8 » Tue Jul 18, 2017 6:24 am

Trying to set the x509-username-field and keep getting this error:
Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) : x509-username-field

I've tried all these in my client config is:

Code: Select all

x509-username-field name
--x509-username-field name
x509-username-field ext:name
--x509-username-field ext:name
Obviously I don't know what I'm doing.
Any suggestions?

--x509-username-field is a server only option so is not supported on the client side.
