My CA Authority create blank CA User



  • Hi everyone!

    I have a problem with pfsense. I currently have an openvpn tunnel running with a user/client that I created.

    The problem is that when and I want to add more users to that CA Authority to add them to the tunnel, I create the blank certificate.

    I think it's something that I have played later after everything is working since I have a user running. Attached photos.

    Thanks!

    I tried some stuff but can't reproduce this.
    Which exact version of pfSense are you running?

    I create certs all the time under multiple different CA's on pfsense..

    Not sue what he did - but sure can not duplicate it. Going to need steps on what you did to create this blank cert.

    Odds are, it's either not a current version or it's been altered in some way that is breaking OpenSSL. Used to be the easiest way to make that happen would be to change something like the product name without making other necessary adjustments.

    There have been a few bugs in recent history on the user manager page when creating certificates, but none quite match that exactly. Something is causing the OpenSSL command to fail but not so badly that it produces an error in the GUI.



  • thanks everyone.
    In the end I created OpenVpn with new CA and VPN certificates again and now it is working. I do not know what could happen before :/

    Does the new CA have exactly the same settings as the previous CA, including the exact same subject? It could be something in the old CA itself that triggered the problem. Without all the details it's impossible to say, though.



  • I think I touch something but I do not know exactly what. But when this happens it's better to start again :).
    thanks!
