    Hi folks,


    Archlinux 86_64 2007-08-2


    On running
    $ sudo openssl rsa -in server.key -out server.key
    Code:
    Error opening Private Key server.key
    6879:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:bss_file.c:352:fopen('server.key','r')
    6879:error:20074002:BIO routines:FILE_CTRL:system lib:bss_file.c:354:
    unable to load Private Key
    Please advise where shall I check and how to fix this problem. Thanks


    On runniing;
    Code:
    $ sudo openssl req -new -x509 -newkey rsa:1024 -days 365 -keyout server,key -out server.crt
    /etc/ssl/certs/

    What FQDN shall I use on "Common Name"?


    On googling I found;
    TIP Setup Your FQDN
    http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Setup_Your_FQDN


    Do I need to do the same on Arch? TIA

    There's no server.key file. Please check if you are in the correct directory.

    $ locate server.key
    $ sudo find / -name server.key
    both no printout

    $ locate .key
    /usr/share/mime-infor/gnome-vfs.keys
    /var/abs/extra/network/nxclient/nomachine.key

    $ sudo find / -name *.key
    /var/abs/extra/network/nxclient/nomachine.key


    Where can I find/download this file? Thanks

    I think you need to create it yourself.

    (solved)

    Problem solved as follow;


    Run;
    $ hostname --fqdn
    Code:
    arch.satimis.com
    

    $ cd /etc/ssl/certs/
    $ sudo openssl req -new -x509 -newkey rsa:1024 -days 365 -keyout server.key -out server.crt
    Code:
    ....
    ..
    Common Name (eg, YOUR name) []:arch.satimis.com
    ...
    etc
    
    At the end server.key generated


    then;
    $ sudo openssl rsa -in server.key -out server-no-pass.key
    Code:
    Enter pass phrase for server.key:
    writing RSA key
