apache + ssl + certificate +netscape = error?

Post by Norbert Wegene » Mon, 23 Nov 1998 04:00:00

I am working with apache +ssl. I have installed the apassl package from
 I can connect to the apache, but whenever I use another value than 0
 SSLVerify , my Netscape 4.0.5 gets the following error:
 A network error occured while Nescape was receiving data.
The error-log says the following:

[Sun Nov 22 16:32:48 1998] created shared memory segment #2944[Sun Nov
22 16:32:48 1998] Server configured -- resuming normal operations
[Sun Nov 22 16:33:06 1998] SSL_Accept failed
[Sun Nov 22 16:33:06 1998] error:140890AC:SSL
routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_CERTIFICATE:no certificate returned

Is this a problem of the client or the serverconfiguration?

1. Can't convert my netscape ssl certificate for use with Apache-SSL

I am trying to convert my netscape certificate to use with Apache-SSL.

I run the ns_convert program like so:

# /usr/local/ssl/bin/ns_convert /usr3/ns-home/https-443. httpd
read RSA private key
Enter Private Key password:
writing RSA private key

Your Netscape ServerKey has been converted, but there is a missing element
in SSLeay which does not allow for immediate conversion of your

You'll receive a converted certificate in the mail shortly, which you
should save in httpd.cert and install using "getcert httpd"

Then I receive the converted cert and try to install it....

/usr/local/ssl/certs# ls -al
total 4
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     system       512 Mar 22 00:30 ./
drwxr-xr-x   8 root     system       512 Mar 18 23:34 ../
-rw-r--r--   1 root     system      1255 Mar 22 00:30 httpd.cert

/usr/local/ssl/certs# getcert httpd
unable to load certificate

error:0D089070:asn1 encoding routines:D2I_X509:error stack
error:0906600D:PEM routines:PEM_ASN1_read:ASN1 lib

This is the error I am getting.  Anyone have any ideas?

I am running Apache-SSL-US 1.0.3+1.1 on OSF1 V3.2 on an alpha.  My
netscape server runs fine with the certificate.
