Replace the Default Server Certificate

The following two FileXpress Gateway services install with self-signed digital certificates.

  • Attachmate FileXpress Transfer Server
  • Attachmate FileXpress Gateway Administrator

To be able to connect to the Transfer Client and Gateway Administrator without seeing certificate warning messages, you can replace each of these self-signed certificates with a certificate from a well-known Certificate Authority (CA). Server certificates can be stored in a PKCS#12 file (*.p12 or *.pfx) or in a Java keystore (*.jks). Refer to the following procedures for details.
