Description

I crated new server certificate and below is the screenshot where the validity can be seen.

However, when I generated new client certificates I am getting the handshake failed error. Attached is the log file.
Also, attached are the old certificate and new certificate details.
Please suggest.

The old certificate you posted is a server certificate, the new one is a client certificate

X509v3 Extended Key Usage:

TLS Web Client Authentication

If you are using that one on the server the client will reject it if --remote-cert-tls server is enabled on it, which is the recommended usage.

Generate a server certificate (one with TLS Web Server Authentication EKU) and use it on the server.
