  1. I’m trying to install Globus Toolkit 5.0.4 in two ubuntu machines. But I have this problem in the first instalation when I try to run the comand “myproxy-logon -s host02” this error apear:

    Failed to receive credentials.
    ERROR from myproxy-server:
    X509_verify_cert() failed: unsupported certificate purpose

    And I also have a problem in the second machine when I try to import the CA from the fist. I receive a message of time out and I don’t know what to do.

    1. I am sorry but I am afraid I can’t be of much help with your problems as I am not very familiar with GT 5.0.x. As for your last inquiry, it’s a little too vague and I don’t understand what exactly you mean with “importing” a CA from one machine to another, nor why you would want to do that. Anyway, time out errors may be due to the machines clocks not being synchronized.
