Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The solution seems to be to set both SSL Certificate File and SSL 
Private Key File equal to the same cvs-default.pem file (which I 
generated from genkeys).  In the prior version, I had  separate key 
and certicate files, and I could not find those instructions today.

Comments would be welcome.
