<&lt;ol start="&quot;10">&quot;&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; '''Seclect Key size''' 4096bit - G) - may need to reduce this to 1024<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; Insert 2-Digit '''country code''' - H)<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; Fill in some '''real or dummy information''' a) to f)<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; '''Fill in Common name''' Use '''localhost''' or your real domain name - I)<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; Click browse button - J)<&lt;br>&gt;Navigate to folder '''C:\UniServer\filezilla_server'''<&lt;br>&gt;This is where the certificate will be saved.<&lt;br><&gt;&lt;br>&gt;'''''Note 1'':''' Your virtual drive letter may be different hence use that.<&lt;br>&gt;'''''Note 2'':''' If you are not using portable mode choose any folder you like.<&lt;br>&gt;However its a good idea to use folder<&lt;br>&gt;*\filezilla_server\filezilla_server_portable<&lt;br><&gt;&lt;br> &gt; <&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; Click '''Generate certificate''' this will take a while. - K) <&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; When complete click '''OK''' - L)<&lt;/ol>&gt;

|valign="&quot;top" &quot; width="&quot;100%"&quot;|
==== FireFox and FireFTP ====
I am assuming your are using FireFox and FireFTP these two are a great combination.
'''''Start FireFTP'':'''
* Start FireFTP plugin '''Tools > &gt; FireFTP'''
===== Main Tab =====
|valign="&quot;top" &quot; width="&quot;100%"&quot;|
===== Connection Tab =====
<&lt;ol start="&quot;6">&quot;&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; '''Click on Connection''' tab - U)<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; From the drop down menu '''select Implicit SSL''' (Good) - V)<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; Check the port number '''990''' is set - W)<&lt;/li>&gt;<&lt;li> &gt; Finally click '''OK''' - X)<&lt;/li> &gt; <&lt;/ol>&gt;
'''''Note'':''' You may need to check the IPv6 box for 4096bi!
Using quick connect makes testing extremely easy fill in the top row as follows:
* A) Enter Host '''ftps:/localhost'''
* D) Enter port '''990'''
* F) Click Quickconnect
* A pop-up is displayed '''Unknown certificate''' click OK<&lt;br /> &gt; Creates an exception.
You can now view and navigate folders assigned to user '''fred'''
