Installing the Server Certificate

In this section, as server administrator, you install the server certificate on the server so that remote Web users can request it. To install a certificate, you store the certificate and the key file in a folder accessible to your server software.

  1. To edit the new HTTPS Echo listener, click its corresponding Edit button on the Listeners page.
  2. Check Secure Sockets Layer.
  3. Enter the full path to and filenames of your server certificate and private key into the Certificate and Keyfile fields respectively. By default, these are srvcert.pem and srvkey.pem, and are installed in /opt/microfocus/DemoCA or $COBSSL (if set).
  4. Click OK.

    On the Listeners page, the entry for HTTPS Echo now has a padlock symbol, which shows that it uses SSL.

Note: Do not set the http-echo conversation type to use in production. It is intended for connection testing only.
