Instant AP's and .PFX cert

Hi All,


Can someone please help me understand why .PFX isnt a supported file type on Aruba instant.


I have recently been told this and im trying to understand why this wouldnt be the case. 


If anyone can shed some light on this that would be great!

Re: Instant AP's and .PFX cert

Don't think there is a specific reason. From the user guide:


Instant supports the following certificate files:

- Authentication server (PEM format)
- Captive portal server (PEM format)

- CA certificate (PEM or DER format)
- RadSec certificate (PEM or DER format)
- WebUI certificate (PEM format)


It is trivial to convert PFX into PEM if you search for it on the internet. I would use a solution that runs on your local system like keytool (Mac) or OpenSSL rather than a service on the Internet where you need to upload your key material.


Your Aruba partner or Aruba SE can create a feature request to see if PFX import can be added to the product.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).
