FW: [omniORB] ssl_echo example problem

I discovered very soon after i wrote mail to omniORB mailing list that
the password is not a file but actual password itself, so i used my
actual password. Now server is working but client is still throwing out

Cought a CORBA:: SystemException: TRANSIENT

I'm generating keys and certificates in the way described bellow:

   1. I created one directory in which i copied the demoCA directory
from        	etc/openssl/bin/PEM. DemoCA directory already contains
all necessary 	files (private/cakey.pem, cacert.pem, index.txt and
serial) for 	creating/generating a new keys and certificates. I also
added the 	C:\Openssl\bin in system path.

   2. I created a new private key and certificate request(one for server
and 	one for client) with following command line:
	openssl req -new -keyout serverreq.pem -out serverreq.pem -days
	openssl req -new -keyout clientreq.pem -out clientreq.pem -days

   3. then i signed the requests using the cacert.pem and commited the
certificate as servercert.pem and clientcert.pem:
	openssl ca -policy policy_anything -out servercert.pem -infiles
	openssl ca -policy policy_anything -out clientcert.pem -infiles
   4. then i copied server's RSA private key from serverreq.pem file and
server's certificate from servercert.pem file to a new created file
(located in output directory of an executable file) 	serverfile.pem
so 	i got that:
	And then i used it in: sslContext::key_file = "servercert.pem";
	I did the same for client.
	Instead of "root.pem" i used "cacert.pem" and for password the
actual 	password :-).

How did you generate your keys?  It's somewhat obscure, and it's very
easy to get it wrong.

That value is not a password file, it's the actual password itself.
Maybe that's the problem?
