The exception is fixed, I somehow missed to add variable tmpCertPrefs in the procedure.

The TLS certificate and TLS key files are intended to be used for client certificate verification. The client sends the certificate to the server in order to get authenticated.

The TLS CA certificate file is used to verify the certificate received from the server by the client. The TLS CA certificate should contain the whole certificate chain in order to be able to verify the server certificate.

Maybe we should add some explanatory text to the preferences TAB, and also maybe a FAQ entry.
