Certificate importing issue

Post#1 by rh102801 » 28 Oct 2016, 16:50

We have an enterprise CA server so I don't really consider this a self signed certificate. We have an Ironport WSA web filter which acts as a transparent proxy. Users need to authenticate to the proxy before internet access is allowed which I already have addressed. My issue now is that because my kiosk is not a domain device, I get certificate trust errors when accessing HTTPS sites. Basically the proxy is an intermediate CA and it creates it's own certificates for each https site however the kiosk is not trusting them and gives me an error. I have tried importing it but either I am not doing it right or it is not working for me. I have seen other posts in the forum where a self signed certificate was being used and therefore modification of the firefox module was required... is that the route I need to go with this? since it really isn't a self signed cert I thought I should be able to just import it.

I never updated this but I ended up figuring out what I was doing wrong. Basically I had typed the path to the directory where the certificates were located but not the certificates themselves so I typed the filenames for the 3 certificates I needed to import it took care of my issue.
