Build-key-pass in windows
Hello , i am string to run the build-key-pass.bat in windows. It is not in the easy-rsa folder and i have looked everywhere to get it. The only one there is build-key.bat
It is not there in ovpn 2.1
Can someone help me to create one please? ;D

This is not a pfSense-question.
Please read inthe openVPN documentation:
I assure you i did! I have also look everywhere on the web with no answer.
Nobody is providing an answer on the Ovpn sites since they usually run everything from BSD/Linux and figured that one of you expert could help!

Copy the build-key.bat script to build-key-pass.bat and remove the -nodes option in the copy (-nodes instructs openssl not to encrypt the secret key).
Thank you KPA for the responce, but it is not working :'(

Remember to run vars.bat everytime before generating any keys.
Thank you! ;D
Not so good with all that code…
It created 3 files test.crt
What is the csr for anyway?
I will try it later and let you know
Thank you very mutch
