Server Certificate Management

When users log on to Gateway Administrator or the FileXpress Transfer Client, the connection is made using HTTPS and the browser requires server authentication. By default, the FileXpress servers send a self-signed security certificate to the browser for this purpose. (A self-signed certificate is signed by the same entity that it certifies.) The browser checks the digital signature in this certificate against its list of trusted Certificate Authorities (CAs). With the default certificates, you see a certificate warning, because the signer of the certificate is not in your browser's list of trusted CAs.

The procedures in this section describe options for managing these server certificates.
