Installing Intermediate Root CA?

L4 Transporter

I'm in the process of purchasing a Wildcard SSL cert and I want to install it on the PAN for a mixture of things such as:

The management interface.

The URL Override SSL certificate.

As a reverse proxy certificate.

This is the one I'm planning on getting:

How do I install the intermediate CA though?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, the Wildcard SSL cert will work for these 3 options. The override page will still get a cert warning because the URL will not match the common name of the cert.

You will need to open the server certificate and the intermediate certificate in notepad and paste all of the text from from the internediate certificate to the bottom of the server certificate. Then you would import this new certificate into the appropriate certificate location.

Perfect, thanks for that.  Interestingly whilst playing around it seemed to work just fine without pasting the Intermediate cert under the actual cert, which confused me a little.

In the end I added the intermediate just to be sure, but if anyone know why that would be the case I'd be interested to know as I thought you had to install the intermediate?

Some certs do come bundled with the intermediate certificate.
