How to extract the Certificate data??



  • Hi!

    im trying to install open vpn in my pfsense router, i have vpntunnel.com and i have download the ca.crt from their webbpage, i have choosen the files for Linux, hope it was the right one.
    and now im about to enter the certificate data in pfsense, but i cant figure out how to extract the certificate from the ca.crt file.

    can somebody help me please?



  • Well - I never use windows to open those files.  Most windows editors will just make a mess of them.
    I usually just put the file on my ubuntu desktop, right click it and open it with gedit.

    Then I select all and copy / paste the contents to where ever I want.



  • On windows i usually install "notepad++" since it doesn't destroy the files when opening.
    (Contrary to some windows native editors).

  • I'll add it to my PortableApps thumbdrive I keep handy for when I'm forced to go slumming on a windows machine  :)

    Its in their repo - I added it.
