Intermediate certs for SSL-VPN portal

L2 Linker


I am using a DigiCert certificate for the SSL VPN portal and the management interface, and it all works well with most browsers. However the certification chain requires an intermediate CA to be trusted/sent as well, and I haven't managed to get that to work on the PAN-box.

It's not a big issue as most browsers seem to be able to resolve the chain by themselves, but for example Firefox on linux and the iPad are unable to verify the chain.

I have added the intermediate certificate required as a trusted CA but that didn't seem to help.

Any suggestions or tips are greately appreciated.

Thanks, Tom


Thank you, essnet!  Nothing else worked for me, but manually appending the intermediate cert to the primary in XML did the trick!

I also had to reboot the devices for the change to take effect.  I would've thought after 1.5 years that would be fixed.

Thanks again!
