How to Install Certificates on 3Com Wireless LAN

Once you have received your certificate files, you will need to install them to the same key from which they were generated.

  • crypto certificate web

    Once again, if you did not use "web" when creating your CSR and key, you will not use "web" here, instead use "eap" or "admin."

  • Next, using a text editor, open the your_domain.crt file you received and copy/paste the entire body of that file (including the Begin and End Certificate lines) into the CLI.
  • Your certificate should now be installed. Before it will work correctly, you will need to install the XYZ.crt file that should have been sent to you along with your your_domain.crt file. If you did not receive this file, you can download it from inside your account (this is called your Intermediate Certificate file).
  • Run the following at the command line:crypto ca-certificate web

    One last time, you will substitute "web" for "eap" or "admin" if that is what you have been doing.

  • You will be prompted to enter the text of the certificate. Once again you will open your file with a text editor and paste the entire body of that file into the provided prompt.

The 3Com Wireless Lan Switch will not allow for the installing of multiple intermediate certificate files. If you were provided with multiple intermediate certificates, this is usually for additional ubiquity purposes and should not impact your clients or connection issues in almost all cases. Although ideally all intermediate files would be installed, that is not possible and fortunately it is not necessary.
