Configuring and connecting to MS 2008 SSL FTP Server

I am attempting to setup a secure FTP server using MS 2008 FTP server. The data and channel require SSL so have adjusted the settings in FTP SSL Settings to "require". I created a self signed certificate and exported it - creates a .pfx file. Also setup a user to with read/write access.
I am using FTPGetter client  which supports SSL v2, SSL v3, TLSv1 and TLSv1.1 however when I try to load the exported certificate it either wants a PKCS12 file (ext .p12) or a PEM/ANSI certifcate (ext .crt).


Connection reset by peer is the current message when attempting to connect.
How can I tell what type of certificate MS 2008 has setup and can I change this to one (PKCS12 PEM/ANSI ) that the FTP  the client can use? Or should iIbe using a different ftp client for this ?
Thanks in advance

This is not  referring to  the type of cert that you have setup on the server.  

This is referring to the format of the exported certificate file.

When you export the cert you should have various options for the format of the exported file.  You need to choose either PKCS12 or PEM.

When I  create the self signed certificate in MS 2008 it doesnt give any options for the format.
Can this be configured somewhere?
