I'm trying to put the finishing bits and pieces on a client / server application I'm writing, but something seems to go foul at the last step in the SSL handshake.
The client side of the program connects and establishes a secure connection with a server without a hitch, but if I want to run operations from the server side of the program, it fails to make any connection.
When I try to connect to my server via Firefox (as the client), the browser will alert to me that the certificate is not suitable for the connection.
On the server side, my logs reflect that there's an
unknown ca or
certificate unkown whenever I try to accept bytes from my client.
I guess my question boils down to this point:
Do you have to make different certificates for a client side application vs a server side application? What's the difference between these?
