Generate a CSR for Netscape Enterprise 3.51

Follow these instructions to generate a CSR for your web site.

Creating a key pair

  1. Open a DOS window. At the command line, type cd <your server root>\bin\admin\admin\bin
  2. Type sec-key at the command prompt. A Netscape key-pair file generation window appears.
  3. When prompted, type an alias for the new key-pair file. You might choose an alias that matches your server (for example, web or mail). The alias cannot contain spaces, but it can use symbols that your operating system allows in filenames (such as hyphens and underscores). By default, the key-pair file is stored in the directory C:/<server_root>/alias/<alias>-key.db where <alias> is the alias you typed. If you used the alias mail, your key-pair file would be C:/<server_root>/alias/mail-key.db.
  4. Type OK. A screen with a progress meter appears. Move your mouse in random motions at random speeds. These random movements are used to generate a random number for the unique key-pair file.
  5. Enter a password.
    Warning: If you lose the password, you must purchase another certificate.
  6. Return to the Keys and Certificates menu in the Netscape Suitespot Server administration page.

  7. Select the alias and password that you generated in the key-pair file.
