| In the openssl.cnf file, the syntax for this extension is

|
| Any number of names may be specified in the comma-separated list.

Ok; but, how do I use this information properly.  I've already tried
using it but it doesn't seem to work.

Sorry, I'm not an openssl wizard.

I've attached my config file.

Thanks,
James
