CSR Generation for CompleteFTP
CompleteFTP is a secure FTP server for Windows. It is designed to be easy to use while providing powerful security features. It supports secure FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS), SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), HTTP/S, and HTTPS. It also supports secure file transfers using the Secure Copy Protocol (SCP).
Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is an important step in obtaining an SSL certificate. A CSR is a block of encrypted text that is generated on the server where the certificate will be installed. It contains information that will be included in the certificate such as the organization name, common name (domain name), locality, and country. The CSR is then sent to the Certificate Authority (CA) to request the SSL certificate.
