Error Codes in Authentication Logging for X.509 Client-certificate Authentication

Jump to solution

I've gotten X.509 client certificate authentication working (as described here: Using client certficates for authentication on wg 7.2.0.8.0), but the intended target browser is not yet working.  I've been turning on authentication logging and trying to make sense of the codes returned.

The logging line of interest at this point includes the text "Authentication for user \".  So far, I've seen return codes on this line of "0", "100", and "101", where "0" is successful authentication, "100" is certificate not accepted, and "101" is signing cert is marked untrusted--as best as I can tell.

Did I get this right?  Are there other codes of interest?
