Hi,

I recently purchased a GoDaddy wildcard SSL certificate, which I intend to install on a Synology DS213 running DSM 4.2-3211. The problem I'm having is that, in order to use a wildcard SSL certificate, the Certficate Signing Request needs to be for a domain name in this format: *.mydomain.com

When I proceed to enter *.mydomain.com in the "Create signing certificate request (CSR)" dialogue box's "Common name" field, it rejects the asterisk. It will let me enter "mydomain.com" but not "*.mydomain.com".

I've tried copying and pasting "*.mydomain.com" directly into that field, which works, but when I click on the "Next" button nothing happens.

Does anyone know how to generate this type of CSR for a Synology device?

Thanks
