Re: [Openvpn-users] Error reading PKCS#12 file

Hi Ralf,

I've run out of options here... there seems to be nothing wrong with the 
p12 file. All I can think of is a openssl library conflict on the client 
machine, e.g. there's another version of ssleay32.dll installed on the 
client box. A re-install of openvpn might alleviate that problem but as 
you stated, you don't own the box. I am curious what the 'openssl 
pkcs12' commands would show on the client's machine instead of on your 
(correctly functioning) PC.
