Client-Core SSL support¶
If you wish to setup an SSL connection between the core and client, you must have compiled both with the "-DWITH_OPENSSL=ON" cmake option. Generate a key with the following command on the server running the core:
Version before 0.4
openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout ~/.quassel/quasselCert.pem -out ~/.quassel/quasselCert.pem
The "~/.quassel/" directory may differ if the --datadir option was specified for quasselcore.
Version 0.4 and later
openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout ~/.config/quassel-irc.org/quasselCert.pem -out ~/.config/quassel-irc.org/quasselCert.pem
The default config directory has changed in version 0.4 and the core's --datadir option has been renamed to --configdir.
Note that Kubuntu packages for Jaunty (9.04) and later do this step for you.
Start the core and select SSL in your Client as shown below:
