I have a problem using some certificates with the new 7.1 version.
(Everything was OK with 7.0 and previous versions with the same ones)

All the certificates we use on our servers are valid for a period of 50 years (it's a policy set by higher-ups, I don't have any power to change these decisions).

When I upgraded our test machine from 7.0 to 7.1, the certificates were marked as "not valid", though the admin page was still running fine.

I also tried to use a self-signed certificate : it is marked as "valid" as long as I don't set the expiry date beyond 2037-12-31.

Is it a desired behavior, or will we have a chance to use again our 50-year-valid certificates in a future release?

I also noticed that the option to change the port used by the administation page is missing.

Is this option going to be back in a future release, or do we have to keep the default port number on our production machines?

(Could someone also tell me where I can change the option within the winroute.cfg file?)

In advance, many thanks for any helpful answer!

The problem of any 32bit system that uses unix-based time is that the time ends with the year 2037 (exactly 2038-01-19 03:14:07 UTC) - the problem is also known as Y2k38 (look for "Year_2038_problem" at

Kerio Control prevents such problem by not allowing any date past the year 2037.
