How do I apply a self-signed certificate, for Summation, to my client machine(s) to avoid the "There is a problem with this website's certificate" warning?
- On the desired client machine. navigate to the Summation website, which should give you the below warning page:
Note: Be sure the URL uses the same "Issued to" hostname specified in the certificate
- Click “Continue to this website (not recommended)”
- Click the area that says "Certificate error"
Note: This icon may be different depending on the version of Internet Explorer
- Click "View Certificates"
- Confirm this is the expected certificate, then click "Install Certificate"
- Set the Store Location as "Local Machine" and click "Next"
- Select "Place all certificates in the following store: and click "Browse"
- Select "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" and click "OK", "Next", then "Finish"
- After the certificate import completes successfully, restart the browser
- You should now be able to navigate to the Summation website without receiving the certificate warning page
Internet Explorer will display a certificate warning page when navigating to the Summation website if the certificate bound to that website is not signed by a Trusted Root Certification Authority. You can remedy this by saving your self-signed certificate to the client machine's Trusted Root Certification Authority store.
