I have installed ubuntu 5.10 I have everything working great and to my
surprise after being a long time Suse fan it seems I have found a distro
that truly enables me to leave windows behind except for one issue. My
job requires me to use a ftp client that is tls/ssl enabled. I have
managed to load gftp and iglooftp gui clients, the iglooftp client when
connecting to a tls/ssl server the gui crashes and just goes away. I
have not been able to gather anything from any sort of log in reference
to this problem I even contacted support to only never get an answer or
even reply to my emails. With gftp it seems as if the problem is because
my employer has decided on using a self signed cert. I did get some info
from the gftp FAQ only to be stalled again by not being able to get the
ssl cert from my employer to manually import it to my box.
From the FAQ
Chapter 5. SSL Issues
5.1. When using the FTPS or HTTPS protocol, gFTP cannot connect if the
remote server uses a self signed certificate.
You must add the public key of your self signed CA to your OpenSSL certs
directory. On my Debian box, the OpenSSL certs are installed in
If anyone at all can assist or point me to a ftp tls/ssl enabled client
that would work with self signed certs would be greatly appreciated.
By the way great job on ubuntu a coworker turned me on to this distro
and it has been truly great very little tweaking that I always found
myself doing with the other distro's to get things to work.
