  My apologies for posting twice. Actually none of my message came
through to me, I saw your response on tortoise website. ;)

   I'm sure nothing has changed. I'm using openssl with a config file
so I don't get bothered to type things in (and don't have to worry
about the random speling mistake). The same cert is used for ssl http
connections as well and besides the initial prompt to warn that it's
self signed there are no errors there.
