RE: Okay, how do you obtain the cert?
Authored by: clarkcb on Jan 24, '03 04:33:01PM

If you are using IE on a PC (sorry, this is the only one I know), the process is:

1. Select Internet Options from the Tools menu in IE
2. Select the Content tab
3. Click the Certificates button
4. Click the Advanced... button and verify that the Export format is defined as "DER encoded binary...". Click OK.
5. Drag the certificate you want to export to your desktop. This creates a .DER-encoded .cer file on your desktop that you will import from.
6. Assuming the file is named "MyCert.cer", copy this file to your home directory on your Mac (via a Samba share or scp; there are other hints that explain these), then run the following in Terminal (in your home directory, which is what Terminal starts in):

% certtool i MyCert.cer k=X509Anchors d

Hope this helps.
