IPSec with Certificates

Creating an IPSec server that uses certificates is done in two steps:
1. Create an empty server entry
2. Create and install clients' certificate files
As Window's IPSec client cannot create its own certificate it is instead created here in this wizard, saved into file, and imported into the client PC.

Connection name / comment - The name to give to the created VPN entries. Allows you to easier find the created configuration entries if you need to change them in the future. You are recommended to replace the standard entry with a more descriptive one.

Certificate subject name - (visible only if no local certificate has been created yet) Subject field of the certificate to be created. You are recommended to replace the standard entry with a more descriptive one, like your name.


step 2:
Create Client Certificate Bundle (P12)
As Window's IPSec client cannot create its own certificate it is instead created here in this wizard, saved into file, and imported into the client PC.
The created P12-file contains both this server's and the remote client's certificates. It can be imported into Windows 2000 and Windows XP for use with their built-in IPSec client.
A maximum 10 client certificates can be created using the wizard.

User name
Enter the name of the user that will use this certificate. The user name will be used as certificate subject name for the created client certificate, and as filename for the created P12-file.
