Q:

Why does VIA 2.3.1 Android clients unable to establish tunnel to the controller?



A:

 

VIA code: 2.3.1

VIA clients are getting authenticated using Certificates.

 

The reason why the VIA Android clients fails to establish tunnel because VIA code does not understand few fields like (street and postal code ) in the server certificate  (pfx file) as shown in the pic.

 


This (accepting street and postal code in cert  ) was fixed in VIA code recently for IOS device but not for Android device. 

 

Work around:

 

We have work around the problem by changing server cert to not include street and postal code in cert DN for Android clients.

In the upcoming VIA code release this issue will be fixed.
