So I can issue certificates, of course. :-) I have issued a dozen, for
various servers (Remote Desktop Services, firewall management console,
Lotus Connections, etc.
The server itself also functions as an SFTP server, since it mostly
just sits there, not doing a whole lot. So might as well make use of

Not really looking to move to some other service, thanks. I realize I
have to move to a newer version of Ubuntu at some point, but I should
be able to just move the CA there by copying files.
