    hello. im trying to setup an ubuntu server just to play around with. I am following the directions from here :


    I am on page 5 step 11 at the part:

    Afterwards we create the certificates for TLS:

    mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
    cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
    openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    chmod 600 smtpd.key
    openssl req -new -key smtpd.key -out smtpd.csr
    openssl x509 -req -days 3650 -in smtpd.csr -signkey smtpd.key -out smtpd.crt
    openssl rsa -in smtpd.key -out smtpd.key.unencrypted
    mv -f smtpd.key.unencrypted smtpd.key
    openssl req -new -x509 -extensions v3_ca -keyout cakey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 3650

    at the line: openssl x509 -req -days 3650 -in smtpd.csr -signkey smtpd.key -out smtpd.crt

    i get the following error:
    smtpd.csr: No such file or directory

    does anyone have any insights on this error and how to resolve it?
    Thanks Rich

    Did you get any error messages in the previous steps?

    I suggest that you run all the TLS commands again, one at a time.
