Export OpenVPN certificates without Client Export manager



  • I just installed 2.3.4 as version 2.4.1 was causing latency to my connection.
    Now things are much better however I'm not able to install the Client Export package with this version of pfsense as it asks me to update to the latest one beforng installing the package.

    The  thing is I obviosuly don't want to return to 2.4.1 as the latency issue will probably come back too, so I'm wondering if I could export the OpenVPN server certificate(s) with WinSCP. If yes, in which path should I look for?



  • I don't know about latency issues in 2.4.1 and trouble to install the Client Export package in 2.3.4.

    However, you can export certs separately if you want. The Client Export tool only bundles config, certs and Windows installer.
    But why want you use WinSCP? Just use the GUI: System > Certificate Manager > Certificates

    Thank you very much for your answer.
    I ended up updating and installing the Export Tool.
    I'm just hoping I won't have any issues with speeds now…
