Re: TLS/SSL problem - unsupported certificate

So, if the goal is to use certificate-based authentication, then the solution is to generate a proper certificate without any usage restrictions on it, or one that says it can be used for client authentication.

If the goal isn't to use certificate-based authentication, then some of your advice is correct.

It seemed to me that OP was simply trying to establish an encrypted connection, as so many have done in the past and slapd was barfing on a missing client cert.

But you don't know enough at this point to say for certain. Ask for clarification before offering advice.

Indeed. I'll remember that :)
