    Great walkthrough thanks a lot!

    One question:
    Where do client.ca and client.key come from? do I have to generate them on my client (windows)?

    Thanks

      Got it.

      On the second page instead of downloading the server.crt and server.key to my client I should have downloaded the client.crt/key I generated earlier. Makes sense.
