Importing an EAServer Certificate into the Client Certificate Store

The EAServer host�s certificate file must be imported
into the Microsoft certificate store on the client�s computer.

You can do this using the Certificate snap-in in the Microsoft Management
Console (MMC).


  1. Select Run from the Windows Start menu,
    type mmc in the Run dialog
    box, and click OK to open the Microsoft Management Console.

    Snap-in dialog boxes.

    A Certificates node displays in the MMC.

    The Certificate Import Wizard opens.


  7. Follow the instructions in the Certificate Import
    Wizard to import the certificate.

    The wizard prompts you to provide a certificate file. For
    server authentication, this is the certificate file that is configured
    as the certificate for EAServer on port 2001 or any other port that
    is specified for use in server-only authentication SSL mode. You
    may already have such a file from configuring EAServer for SSL connections,
    or, if you have access rights to the built-in Java keystore on the
    EAServer host, you can export the required certificate from the
    keystore.

    For more information about exporting a certificate, see the EAServer documentation.

    Note:

    The server�s certificate file need not include its
    private key.
