I would like to avoid a web browser invalid certificate warnings when I'm trying to authorize to wireless network through Web Auth portal. How can I correctly create and import self-signed certificate to my vSZ for Windows clients?

Are you using the build-in Captive Portal, or a 3.th. party portal?

Anyway: A self-signed certificate will allways generate a warning.You need a proper officially signed certificate to not trigger those warnings..

The hostname/IP of the portal needs a valid certificate.

PS: You can never remove the warning, if the client asks for a secure site, and get's another secure site.

Hi,
No, I didn't solve this problem. Support recommended me to buy the certificate, but finally I have resigned from Web Auth.

The solution is that Hotspot (WISPr) internal should be used instead of Webauth Portal ...
