About client certificates

Post by secooonder » Mon Apr 12, 2021 5:11 am

Hi
I'm trying to install openvpn 2.4.7 server on ubuntu 20.04 Lts.But i faced some problems.

1)When i generated client certificate;

Code: Select all

root@xx:/etc/openvpn# source vars ;/build-key-pkcs12 client1
You appear to be sourcing an Easy-RSA 'vars' file.
This is no longer necessary and is disallowed.See the section called.
'How to use this file' near the top comments for more details
My understanding is that the resource is no longer running.İs it true ?

2)When i generated client certificate;
./easy-rsa gen-req client1
./easy-rsa sign-req client cilent1
i have no problem above command.

in the new version openvpn , is the creating client this command? is it safe than pkcs12 ?

Shortly, in New openvpn server, how to create a user certificate is recommended
Thank you very much
