    Hi am getting the following error when trying to generate the ssl keys for postfix. I have tried and tried and even reloaded the server and still I get the same error. I need help! :confused:

    Centos 4.4 fully patched and working on section "The Perfect Setup - CentOS 4.4 (32-bit) - Page 5" center of the page.

    [root@sparrow ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    189 semi-random bytes loaded

    Are you sure that you typed in the exact same password twice? Have you tried to use a simpler password without any special chars?

    Yup, I tried over and over with both simple and complex passwords.

    Did you install the correct keymap for your keyboard?
