IPSec VPN certificates

L0 Member

I’m very new to Palo Alto and testing things out on a home virtual lab on local computer.  I’m trying to configure IPSec vpn between 2 sites using certificates.  My problem is that when I export the certificate from PA-1, I cannot import it to PA-2 because I don’t know where FW-1 has saved it on the windows 10 pc being used to manage the firewalls.


Is it possible to manually copy the certificate from PA-1 and save it to the windows 10 desktop where I can then upload it to PA-2?  Can anyone help?


Thanks Nikolay.  The first link yielded a solution for me.  I used Internet Explorer.  Microsoft Edge also worked but not firefox or chrome.
