[Solved] ns-cert-type: Cannot connect my phone to the server

Post by deaconbishop » Fri Jan 08, 2016 2:33 pm

This has not worked before and my first try. I know I can see the port open on the server and I can telnet to it and the logs show that I hit it with that telnet session. I cannot get my android phone to connect to it. Here is the log.

2016-01-08 08:19:35 official build 0.6.46 running on samsung SM-G900P (MSM8974), Android 5.0 (LRX21T) API 21, ABI armeabi-v7a, (samsung/kltespr/kltespr:5.0/LRX21T/G900PVPU3BOG1:user/release-keys)

2016-01-08 08:19:38 Use --help for more information.

Am I missing the certificates? They are in the opvn file I am using for configuration.

--ns-cert-type needs an argument .. normally server

See --ns-cert-type in The Manual v23x

OMG What a dummy. Reviewing the config file there was a carriage return after the --ns-cert-type so server was on the next line. I guess it is as always watch for the semi colon. :o
