When installing the ImageVault Core service, a self signed SSL certificate is issued. To be able to access the Core service from another computer the client computer needs to trust the issuer of the SSL certificate.

Attached to this solution is the public key of the Issuer certificate.

To add the issuer certificate as a trusted issuer, follow the following steps.

  1. Download the ImageVaultDefaultRootCA.cer file and store it on the client computer.
  2. Right-click the file and select "Install Certificate"
  3. Select the "Store Location" "Local Machine" and click Next
  4. Select "Place all certificates in the following store" and click browse.
  5. Select the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" node and click OK.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Click Finish.
Now your computer will trust any connection to any SSL protected resource that uses certificates issued by the Issuer certificate.

To check if the client now trusts the certificate, open a web browser (you might need to restart any open webbrowsers for the change to take effect), navigate to the test image using the following url (change servername and port to the one you installed it to).




If all works correctly you should get no SSL errors.
