Hi,

I am receiving the following error when attempting to connect to the built in OpenVPN server of Endian Firewall 2.3:
"Unable to connect because your certificate is not yet valid. Check that your system time is correct."

I discovered that the time and date in the BIOS was incorrect on the Endian Firewall box, so i corrected the issue and rebooted the server, but i still get the same error.  I could not find an option to recreate or delete the current CA certificate from Endian Firewall web interface and suspect the the certificate still has the wrong date and tie specified.

Is there a way (either through web interface or CLI) that i can delete the incorrect CA certificate and create a new one?

I have tried using the reset button on the IPSec web interface page, but that only resets certificates for IPsec VPN's.

Regards,
John

I ended up re-installing Endian Firewall 2.3 and setting up the VPN from scratch.  Worked first go! Smiley
It would still be nice to know if there is a way to recreate a CA certificate under OpenVPN server if it is corrupt or has the wrong time...
