Self signed SSL Cert

Post by virtualambiance » Mon Jul 02, 2007 2:40 am

I would like to know how many bits the SSL certificate that Cerberus creates is. I thought I read somewhere it was 256 bits. Occasionally when I transfer files, I get time out errors and sometimes eventually disconnect. Is this because of the overhead that SSL uses to encrypt the communication channel? When I attempt the same transfer with no SSL, the uploads and downloads are faster and occur with no problems. I recently utilized OPENSSL and created my own .PEM file for Cerberus and scaled the bits back to 124. If you could please notify me as to how many bits the default is It would be appreciated. Thank you.

Virtual,
The cert is 256-bit. I think what's probably happening is what I found and fixed in this post here:

Give that a try and see if it helps.
