Hi, I'm trying to set up an FTPS connection that should be using a SSL cert for authentication, When I trie to connect I get the following error:

"DerInputStream.getLength(): lengthTag=109, too big."

The cert is an pkcs12 converted from OCES, are these certs supported buy GoAnyWhere?
In the help I found that pkcs12 is supported, and I can choose it when choosing cert.

The short info I can find about these certs can be found here:

This could just be a configuration issue. Can you send in screen shots of what you're trying to accomplish and where you are getting this error message?

Hi, here are some screen shoot of the connection I'm trying to setup.

But I think the issue is in the certificate, since it's not a absolute standard.

When I expand the stack trace it ends by saying there are 65 more events, but I can't see them.

Best regards,
