FMServer 15 does allow the use of non-supported SSL-CA's

Today I installed a new FileMaker Server 15 and thought to give my letsencrypt-certificate from my webserver a try on FMServer. Just because is has been made so easy now to import a ssl-certificate.

 

AND IT WORKS JUST FINE!!!!!!

 

It works on FM-GO, Webdirect AND on Pro/Advanced. On Pro/Advanced one gets the warning that FMI cannot validate the certificate, but the connection works fine and the connection IS encrypted. On Go and webdirect, i don't get any warning, which maybe a security-issue in the eyes of some of you.

 

I am very happy though that for testing-purposes I can install virtually any certificate of my choice, which is for me "letsencrypt". And I've seen a few complaints here and there about this from others, so I am not the only one who likes this!

 

So a big like you, for you FMI! Thanks!
