    Hi

    I have followed your tutorial on howtoforge.com regarding Installing A LAMP System With Fedora Core 6.

    All is well until step 10, postfix. when I got to this step:
    openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    It asked for a pass phrase. See output below:

    [root@patrol ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    282 semi-random bytes loaded
    Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
    .........................................++++++
    ..........................................................++++++
    e is 65537 (0x10001)
    Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:

    What do I enter?

    Thanks - Brent

    Thanks
