Novell Apache
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6 or earlier
Nile.nlm earlier than version 7.00.01 Dated August 20, 2007
Certificate contains UTF-8 encoded names


Attempted to use a Thawte signed Certificate to enable SSL communication to Apache.

Can't establish a secure connection using a 3rd party certificate.


The nile.nlm that is included in Netware 6.5 Support Pack 7 dated August 20, 2007 now handles UTF8 encoded names. Earlier versions did not. It is required that support pack 7 be applied.
