Ok simple quesiton(s).
What exactly do I need for ssl to work..
What I know...
I first have to create a private key on my server. (Should I use an RSA or
Then I have to create a certificate using that private key. (For test
Should I use a passphrase for what Im trying to do?
Do I have to produce a public key? if so .. how?
Do I have to place any of this manually within my ftp/ssl client (Im using
wsftp pro win)
Asking this becuase within wsftp pro there is a section I can make
certificates import and everything.
Why do these options exist if the server passes everything back and forth
between the ftp client.
Question concenring proftpd..
Below is what I placed in my proftpdconf
# Are clients required to use FTP over TLS when talking to this server?
# Server's certificate
TLSRSACertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/cacert.pem <-- My cert
TLSRSACertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/private/privkey.pem <--- My Private
# CA the server trusts
TLSCACertificateFile /etc/ftpd/root.cert.pem <-- What should I target
# Authenticate clients that want to use FTP over TLS?
For all I know the above mod_tls setting I have above is completly wrong.
As we speak the client gets disconected immediatly.
Maybe there is something else I have to do to have the ssl connection
Ive read soo much shit online and find it stupidly hard to figure this out
for the first time..
Maybe somone can answer my questions ..
Or atleast point towards a website .. anything..
Thanks in Advance...
Menno will probably respond to this .. I hope.
