How to create CSR using Access Gateway 8.0 Appliance:
 

1. In the GUI configuration tool, go to SSL --> CA Tools.

2. Click Create RSA Key in the right pane ( do not use the <Certificate wizard> link shown on the SSL page ).

3.  Enter the Key Filename e.g. filename.key ; Key Size: 2048 ; Keep PEM as the key format and select DES3 for the PEM encoding algorithm ; Enter the   PEM passphrase to protect the private key. Click Create and then Close.



 

4.  Click Create Certificate Request on the CA Tools page. Type e.g. filename.csr for the request file name and filename.key for the key file name. Re-enter the PEM passphrase you created in the previous step.

5.  Click Create and then click Close.


 

6.  The filename.csr file now resides on the appliance in the /nsconfig/ssl directory. This file can then be transferred to a workstation.

Use WinSCP or any other secure FTP client to connect to the Access Gateway. Log on as nsroot.
