user home directory in client.conf

Post by Leon2 » Mon May 17, 2021 7:36 am


I have placed the certificates in the home directory of the user. Like:
cert /home/leon/client-cert.pem

I would like to use the same client.conf for all client computers.
Is there a function to expand the user home directory path?
something like:
cert ~/client-cert.pem
cert $HOME/client-cert.pem

Thank you!

This is a configuration file and does not support any expansion.
