Hi All, First time user and I have it installed and can see the admin panel on my RPi chromium browser. On my Macbook - how do I install the 'certificate' file certificate.der that I downloaded from the self-help page? And what do I need this certificate to do for me? It's not behaving as I would expect currently when I set the Gatesentry RPi as my web proxy in Mac OS network settings, but it's been live for all of a couple of hours so far so more learning on my behalf needed I think. All help and guidance appreciated. Richard

Today all the webs communications (99%) requires to use SSL (Security socket layer protocol) Can you see that urls now starts at "https://" . this is a problem between proxies and websites and proxies and Chromium It is, web server in internet gives you a certificate and the proxy receives and give it back. (like security mechanism). The proxy simulates this "game" whit the web server in internet. It's absolutely necessary. What is the problem? Chromium requires to make this too. And play the same game with the proxy. Proxy Makes his own SSL certificate an Chromium can trust in connections. Sorry for my English

Thanks @watermelon0088 - the problem is I don't know where I need to place the certificate.der file that the instructions say to download from the self-service portal and install on your client machines (not the proxy server). At least this is what I think I am meant to do with the certificate.der file... :-\
