OpenVPN config

Post by Chris663 » Fri Aug 23, 2019 11:48 pm

I've recently updated to the most recent Softether Server installation on my Ubuntu 18.04 server. I am trying to create a OpenVPN config through the application on my windows computer and ever since I updated I get this error when I try to use the auto generated config on openvpn: Options error: You must define CA file (--ca) or CA path (--capath). I have never had this problem in older versions so I am confused, please help.

I made this work with following additions to generated config:
So basicly you connect to Sofether-OPenvpn server using User/pass auth method but also specifying certs...

auth-user-pass


<ca>
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

YOU ROOT CA CERT CONTENTS

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
</ca>
<cert>
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

YOUR CLIENT CERT CONTENTS

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
</cert>

<key>
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

YOUR CLIENT PRIVATE KEY CONTENTS

-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
</key>

I don't know how to make the certificates that's the main problem

The easiest way to manage selfsigned certs (if you are a Windows user) - use xCA programm.

How would you add the generated ROOT CA and server certificates to the OpenVPN installation of SoftEther?
