#51 closed Bug / Defect (wontfix)

Easy-rsa howto needs more info

Reported by: samuli Owned by: ecrist
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: easy-rsa Version: easyrsa-2.x
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:



This actually bit me once when I first setup openvpn and when I saw a bug filed on ubuntu's launchpad over a similar problem, I thought I'd report it.

The way to execute vars in easy-rsa's howto needs further info for inexperience new users as ". vars" looked like simply executing the file i.e "./vars". This of course will not export the env variables in the correct scope. May I suggest switching that step in the instructions to perhaps "source vars" or append further information to that step in the instructions to explain that ". vars" is to be run as is.

In all things easy-rsa please work with the easy-rsa project. That said, easy-rsa 2.x is no longer supported, so I'll close this as "wontfix".
