  • Hi Luis,



    The client and serverside connections and SSL handshakes are completely independent of each other. So you can configure a cert/key in the client SSL profile which is a different size than what the pool member(s) use (or what the server SSL profile has configured).



    Is that what you were trying to confirm?
