Hi,

I'm trying to generate an ssl keystore, for use with jetty. Instructions say:

    The only mandatory response is to provide the fully qualified host name of the server at the "first and last name" prompt. For example:

    keytool -keystore keystore -alias jetty -genkey -keyalg RSA
    Enter keystore password:  password
    What is your first and last name?
    [Unknown]:  jetty.mortbay.org

I'm just running this on localhost for testing - what would I use for the hostname?

I'm on mac os 10.6 if it matters,

Thanks
