See....that's the weird thing. The CA (and the ICA) are both certs I generated.
I'm beginning to think there is a disconnect between OpenWRT's OpenSSL and OpenVPN wiki pages.
Or it's a case of PICNIC (Problem In Chair, Not In Computer)
But one thing worries me, their OpenSSL stuff leave the certs and the keys on the router....which can't be right, can it?

Be good to have a chat, perhaps Sunday? I may have even upgrade my Nextcloud by then!
I do think I am missing something obvious in the OpenSSL bit.
