RE: Curl and IIS 4 Client Authentication using pem certs

I've no knowledge about IIS, a problem might be the
CA cert.

Is the Certificate Authority also known to IIS?
(I don't know if you also added the CA cert. used to
generate the Client Certificate to the Server...)

Otherwise the client certificate is correct but cannot be validated against an
authority cert.
