    Archer C3150 V2: OpenVPN certifcate - error parsing config key

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Hi all,

    I'm struggling the following for a few days now.. I wan't to setup OpenVPN for multiple clients on my Archer C1350 V2 (but lets start with one) and I keep getting error messages when i porting the opvn file in the OpenVPN app of my IphoneSe

    I've followed the instructions on the website:
    - didn't change any of the ports
    - created a dynamic dns with noip (but also tried it with the external ip addres)
    - created and exported the opvn file
    - imported the file via iTunes to my iphone

    What ever, I do, I keep getting the following error:
    Core_error PolarSSL: error parsing config private key : PK - Invalid key tag or value : ANS1 - ASN1 tag was of an unexpected value

    I've opened the opvn file in Notepad++. Can't see anything strange, however, I have no clue where to look I compared it with a colleague of mine, but he has user ID / password. When I change my file in line with his, I've been asked (off course) to fill out userid password which hasn't been created so that doens't work.

    As far as I can see, there is no other way to create the certificate in the router.

    Any ideas?

    Is your router EU or US version? What's the current firmware version? Did you try it on Android phone?

    Red face Fixed: beta software resolved the issue

    Hi Shield101, my firmware is the EU version. I don't have an android foon to try. I did try with multiple Ios phones (different models)

    However: It took some time for this thread to be published, so in the meantime (friday 1AM when I was really fed up ) I talked to an employee via chat and she provided me with a beta version of the software (Archer C3150(EU)_V2_170904_beta). This turned out to be the solution. A fix in 5 min whereas I was already struggling for 2 days
