Currently there is a limitation with the GENERATE ENCRYPTION KEYPAIR command that prevents 4D from generating a key whose length is greater than 1024. However, this does not prevent 4D v11 SQL from using a 2048 bit SSL key.

You can try this workaround if your SSL provider requires a 2048 bit key.

This solution has been tested using Windows Vista SP2 and MacOS X 10.6.2.

It would be very useful when writing tech notes to include all the *relevant* information required.

DO NOT select a passphrase. If you do 4D will crash on launch with the cert and key you generated. I hope this saves someone an hour or so I just spent...
