A nice step by step guide with a generous inclusion of screenshots. Very useful Aryne!
I recommend Windows users get the latest binaries for OpenSSL from https://www.openssl.org/community/binaries.html. The GNU implementation is older than what's currently available.
Thanks Hiko, I initially referred to the OpenSSL site too but couldn't find the installer, only the source, which is why I resort to downloading it from the GNU site instead. I will update the doc pointing to this link instead: Binaries - OpenSSLWiki Cheers,
