    Hi,

    I am running an AC86 as main router of an AiMesh setup. The fw is 384.18 on all devices. I activated http and https access and downloaded the router's certificate from System -> Service. The file is called cert.tar but trying to expand it fails:

    Code:
    $ tar xvf cert.tar
    x cert.crt: Truncated tar archive
    Is that the expected behavior?

    Thanks
    Torsten

    Hmm, now I'm puzzled. This is where I download the certificate. The file I am getting is called cert.tar. Yours is called cert_key.tar.

    OK, it's getting weird. I noticed that uidivstats page was blank and that the logfiles had not been updated for almost a day. I rebooted and now the tar can be successfully extracted (just a cert.crt file but intact).
