Setup new computer

Post by pataxguy » Sat Nov 09, 2019 5:33 am

I am trying to setup a second computer to use OpenVPN. I copied the configuration file and certificates from a working computer to the new computer. I am receiving the following errors when I try to connect. This is my first exposure to OpenVPN and I haven't had any luck finding an answer. It appears there are issues with the certs but they work for the other computer.

Sat Nov 09 00:21:21 2019 VERIFY ERROR: depth=0, error=CA signature digest algorithm too weak: C=CO, ST=ST, O=O, OU=OU, CN=server, dnQualifier=server
Sat Nov 09 00:21:21 2019 OpenSSL: error:1416F086:SSL routines:tls_process_server_certificate:certificate verify failed

Sat Nov 09 00:21:21 2019 TLS Error: TLS object -> incoming plaintext read error
Sat Nov 09 00:21:21 2019 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
