Here is the output:
C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin>openssl.exe verify -trusted ..\config\SSL_HUG1 at l1139218.vt-security.de\l1139218.vt-security.de.ca.crt ..\config\SSL_HUG1 at l1139218.vt-security.de\l1139218.vt-security.de.user.crt
..\config\SSL_HUG1 at l1139218.vt-security.de\l1139218.vt-security.de.user.crt: OK
But it seems I don't have the root certificate, just the CA certificate?
I will send both certificate files in another mail.

you were one step ahead of me :)
I fully agree that it is a poor test, I was just wondering if there was an encoding error in the cert itself, esp as the EndDate approaches the 32bit epoch...
Wolfgang, can you send me both the client cert and the CA cert that goes with it? both are public info.
