Enabling SSL Where Did i Go wrong ?

Post by timex163 » 2014-08-31 22:55

Greetings !

So i just created an SSL certificate with startssl and installed it on hmailserver. I followed the installation process in the https://www.hmailserver.com/documentati ... rtificates . I also opened inbound 465 and 993 on the firewall. And still can't get people to connect using ssl. Anyone got any sort of recommendation ?

I tried Thunderbird locally and from my computer to try to log in using ssl.

Thanks for all your help !

Did you remove the certificate password?

Does it work without using SSL?

OH GREAT ONE ! Thank you for answering my post.

Yes I did, I basically used this command.

openssl rsa -in privkey_with_passphrase.key -out privkey_without_passphrase.key

Did i mess up that part ?

I don't use openSSL so I am unsure if that is correct or not

Ok it seems to have fixed itself.

This what I did go figure why it did not accept incoming data.

I simply created the autoconfig file with subdomain, made a reboot And everything went good.



But what i am getting now is that my ssl are not Valid.

Fixed. I had to add the PEM certificat at the end of the main certificat.
