Free SSL Certificate for your NAS

Postby bbaraniec » Fri Nov 11, 2011 2:01 am

Hi there,

If you are using web applications on your ReadyNas most likely you will use HTTPS and therefore SSL Certificate. If you don't feel like paying few $ for it you might wanna try http://www.startssl.com/. They offer 1 year for free. It's only 10-15 minutes from the moment you issue certificate to the moment when you have it running on nas.
I don't have anything to do with smartssl and this is not an advertisement.
Best regards

Hi,

Do you have a step by step guide on how to install such a certificate on the readynas? Note that I don't know much about unix, pretty much nothing, but not afraid to try but I'd like to by a cert from such a company or the likes of godaddy.com but I just don't have a clue on how to do it and I don't see any options in netgear's web
Admin module.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

T.

Hi,

Sphardy has written pretty good step by step: https://sphardy.com/web/readynas/instal ... -readynas/
I was considering godaddy my self. I've found a site with SSL Certificates comparision where I found about smartssl.
Unfortunately Netgear does not provide such option via web interface so you need to try installation via SSH.
