In that case, the server knew a given CA, (let's call it ca1), but the
certificate of the client was signed by another CA (ca2). When the
client sent its certificate, this certificate was accepted by the
server. Have I got to do a special check in the server implementation in
order to verify that my server knows the CA the certificate of the
client was signed with ?

ok, I tried to use the CVS version, but when I make the project, a file
is missing (.ltconfig). Do you know what the problem is ?

I did not test the examples in the documentation. I will check the error
