Command line launching NC on Linux

[ Edited ]

I have a user which would like to launch NC command line.

Can someone help with the parameters on the ncsvc executable. Especially with the following parameter:

-f <ivecertificate_in_der_format>

> Specifies the certificate required to authenticate the user on the
> secure gateway (in .der format)

Which Certificate is in question here as it's not an optional parameter?

We are not using certificates to connect, but normal User authentication.

Re: Command line launching NC on Linux

I don't know much about the NC command line, but according to a post in the Ubuntu Forums (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=232607&page=28), you can get the IVE certificate using the following shell script:



echo | \
openssl s_client -connect ive.example.com:443 2>&1 | \
openssl x509 -outform der -out ive.crt
