Certificates containing UTF8 encoded names don't work on Netware

This document (7000540) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


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.
