CSR Generation for NETBOTZ 450 v 4.5.4

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by amber.meier on 2018-04-16


I have been attempting to follow the instructions for generating a CSR for SSL certificate located else were on this site. My equipment is a Netbotz 450 (version 4.5.4).

The problem is that Shift+x within 5 seconds does not break into the underlying linux shell. The session just terminates after 5 seconds. I have attempted these instructions via telnet on a local router and via putty with no success. Are there other options?

Dear amber.meier,

This is not the first time such a problem. For example, a similar post was recently published on page Re: Creating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) by customer haseebk2000.

Have you tried using the latest version of PuTTY? On my NetBotz-450 I'm use latest firmware 4.6.2.

With respect.

Nevermind. I figured this out. For others who have the same problem:

IMMEDIATELY after login credentials press Ctrl+c. You must do this while product and configuration information are still scrolling, otherwise Ctrl+c will just repeat the product/config information. In this case, just keep pressing Ctrl+c repeatedly until you get the root@botname prompt.

Hope this helps!

Dear amber.meier,

I suspect, that this is a problem with the old NetBotz-4.x firmware 4.5.4, since I have no problems with the latest firmware. I.e. for me, everything works fine as described in section Creating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

In any case, thanks for the feedback.

In addition, I highly recommend, that you use the latest NetBotz-4.x firmware, especially since you are going to use HTTPS.

With respect.
