Ovpn certificate expiry

Thu Feb 20, 2014 3:15 am

Hi all,
I'm using openVPN with certificates on mikrotik devices. The server is an Ubuntu server.
I generated the certificates on the server and uploaded them on mikrotik. When I generated the certificates, they are valid for 3650 days.
I tried opening them on windows and it says certificate is valid until January of 2024.
But in mikrotik, the ceritificate says valid for 365 days only. Does this mean I should generate certificate again after a year and then upload it again on mikrotik?

I believe if you change the clock in the MikroTik forward a year, you will see the answer to that :D

Activated NTP for the correct time. Still certificates are shown to be valid for only 365 days.
