Hi Paul,

I had found the solution. I'd simply made a mistake : I had forgot to copy one certificate (CA Root certificat) on my road warrior.

When I've looked /var/log/auth _ON_ my road warrior, I've understood my mistake.
Now I can use connexions using x509 certificates.

Thank a lot for your answer and sorry for the noise.
