I struggled through this problem last week with cURL and FTPS. I finally
got cURL and FTPS working in Win2K Pro using by using the cURL option

--capath <directory>

Then I used the

openssl x509 -hash

command to get the hash value for the self-signed root CA certificate I
use for testing, then put a copy of that certificate in <directory>,
naming the certificate <hash>.0.

For some reason the

--cacert <file>

cURL option would not work for me.
