Development build request

I would like a copy of the development version to test out Client Certs. Can I get it as a portable ZIP since this is just for testing? If not, regular installer will work. Thanks!

No longer needed. I got my hands on it :)

I wish that I could specify a .cer (base64, not DER or whatever it is called) and.key file for client certificate. Is that on your plan for the future of client certificates? If not, I'll create a new topic here.
I will note that using openssl to combine those into a .pfx with a -passphrase=xxxx works just great as well, so the 5.8 client functionality is 100% working.

Thanks for the amazing program!

How did you get it?

It should be working. Select the .key and WinSCP will look for .cer or .crt with the same base name.

I emailed another user on this forum that received a link from you who made their email address publicly available and then edited the URI to point to the latest build. I was trying to get an automation project done by today >.<

It looks like using .key and a .cer (but only the Base64 encoded version) worked for me. For operability, the other encoding might be good for WinSCP to read so that people don't have to install a cert and then export from the certstore with the right encoding (like I did).

So what particular format is not working? How do you generate it?

See attached image. The file I had was a DER encoded binary. I have tested and found you can convert the DER binary to Base-64 encoded X.509 (the other option in the picture below) by:

1) Convert to base 64
2) Prepend -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----\r\n
3) Append \r\n-----END CERTIFICATE-----\r\n

So if read a file and do the same thing, you should be able to load cert as your code already does from there. If you decide to program this in, I will be happy to test, verify, and report. Also, should you need it, I can send a copy of my DER cert and you can test decoding it.

Thanks for your answer. I'll look into it. I'll contact you once I have anything to test.
