AEP Netilla SSL VPN

After generating the CSR and completing the order process, the certificate provider will send the certificate files. You should extract all files and save them to the directory on the server.

Copy and paste each file into a text file using Notepad or Vi, Now save each one as a  root_ca.crt, intermediate_ca.crt and your_domain.crt

The content of the files should look like below:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
.....encrypted data.....
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

Install Root Certificate:

  • In Netilla Administrator, just browse System configuration>General>SSL>CA certificates where you will find an option of “Upload New”.
  • In “Upload New” window, copy and paste the entire content of root certificate.
  • Now Click on Submit.

Install Intermediate Certificate:

  • Open Netilla Administrator, on the left side, browse System configuration>SSL>CA certificates, you will find “Upload New” option.
  • Copy and paste the entire content of the intermediate certificate.
  • Now Click on Submit.

Upload SSL Certificate:

  • Go to System configuration>SSL>CA certificates, you will find “Upload certs from CA” option.
  • Now you have to fill the data of your certificate file (your_domain.crt) created earlier.
  • Copy the data from a your_domain.crt file and paste it on “Upload Cert from CA” window.
  • Click on Submit button.

To verify the SSL installation, you should take help our SSL checker tool. Just type the server hostname and you will get the certificate details like certificate validity period, certificate issuer, serial number, a signature algorithm, server type, etc.
