    Hi,

     

    This is what i do with private CA (using openssl), you may get it done using public CA.

     

    1) Generate CSR for FQDN of captive portal. (for example, the url of my captive portal is vc1.panda.internal, this should be resolvable by DNS of client devices)

    2) Submit this CSR to CA (public/private)

    3) CA will provide you (depending on the encoding format) probably a .crt file and .key file

    4) These files can be opened in notepad. You will see begin certificate --- end certificate in .crt file and begin private key, end private key in .key file.

    5) Combine both these files. Simply copy .key file content to .crt file like below

     

    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    MIIDqzCCApOgAwIBAgIJAMmKxQ6aKcBzMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBCwUAMHUxCzAJBgNV
    upub3KvnMEtPMUHPs4GsmyhiL0TOjVcdWc2ScPgYrgcv/1Pcbh7qErQsd/q+iMYK
    nNmUIlWCTIT1fQTdgqSq5uXFoNan3mpf06cyPESG1Q==
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    MIIEpQIBAAKCAQEAvw1jGLQcFOYExHQUUEhovsEwuVEvkcrBbJymvld+y3NhZMp6
    OkeJrPtXItZRIt7PLS+a+iwJvlEKAWimmH9U4eSKRZAaK6t+fjrx2OzXMkcb8tDD
    JP8KP/mR3bPuoQT8U8jGJUKqEdwa2mrgv4kW775fdAyOCri/vnrEOpk=
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

    6) Go to maintenance window > Certificates. Select captive portal and format should be CER, upload the newly updated file, next you have to enter the password for private key, simply enter any password you like and upload.

    Hi,

    Do you have a .key file or any file containing private key?

    Go to Maintenance / Certificates / Upload New Certificate

    1) Choose Certificate Type as Captive Portal Server and upload the "Modified" abc_com.crt. By modified I mean, you need to edit this file via text editor and add the private key and CA certificates chain and save the file.

     

    I recommend to follow this link https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-less-WLANs/How-to-Create-a-Certificate-for-Instant-Captive-Portal-using/ta-p/277025

    Hi,

    Is there something specific that is confusing you. Have you created a .crt
    file with both certificate and key?
