SA520 - SSL VPN & CSR for 2048 cert from Go Daddy

I have set up a SSL VPN that works, but now want a cert so I can give it a name for users go to instead of an IP.

So I create the CSR and send it in, only to have Go Daddy say it's "corrupt"  and that it's a 1024 and they only create 2048 certs.

I've followed different treads, the SA520 help guide, Cisco documentation, called Cisco SMB support twice and still can not get a proper CSR that Go Daddy will accept.  Now the really frustrating thing is Cisco says there is bug and 2048 is not supported.  But I see in discussions on this site some have got Go Daddy to accept the CSR and send them a Cert.

So, has anyone with a SA520 firmware 2.1.71 successfully created a CSR, sent it to Go Daddy, imported the Cert and have a valid SSL VPN working?

If so, please help!!  The time I've spent on this is ridiculious.  Maybe it's as simple as a specific firmware that works with this as their config is pretty simple, we just want a domain name for SSL VPN.

Jef, I have confirmed with L2 the current beta firmware supports 2048 bit cert from Verisign. Curtis Counsil, a forum poster may also be extremely helpful as he has fought this battle a long time and has used several releases for his business' purpose.

Thank you Thomas do you mean beta or 2.1.72 beta?  I've tried already and dropped back to 2.1.71 thinking that was the issue but same results.

Also I would like to stay with Go Daddy if possible due to cost as there is quite a difference.
