As written in the top of page, the document is obsoleted and you should read
DeleGate after 9.0.1 does not need sslway as a external command but it uses the
built-in version by default, and has a default certificate built into it too.

 |2.) How do I instruct Delegate not to establish sessions with HTTPS sites

For example, put the CA's certicicate at DGROOT/etc/pems/cacert.pem and use
it for verification as follows:

  FSV="sslway -Vrfy -CAfile pems/cacert.pem"
