Re: [gftp] SSL - SSH - How?

Hello Ken,
	Thanks for the reply.  No, the gftp is running under Kubuntu.  I am using 
ethernet to the linux box.  Connection to websites and e-mail performs OK 
using Kmail and the KDE browser or Firefox.  Kmail is the only success with 
this Kubuntu.  The Evolution and Thunderbird do not connect to the server.  I 
did a lot of tweaking before the success with Kmail.  Kmail is good enough.

	The problem is the server I want to get into requires a certificate (codes) 
to get past the SSL.  The two Windows programs I have found that generate the 
certificate work OK.  Filezilla, which is free from Source Forge download 
works very smoothly.

	So ... All the research I have done has not uncovered a simple way to 
generate the certificate under Linux plus deal with the SSL.

	Any suggestions are appreciated.

	Thanks again,  Jack
