It is my first time working with SSL certificate. I am in the process of migrating from Ignition 7 to Ignition 8. Ignition 7 did not have SSL enabled while in Ignition 8 we are trying out the SSL. Due to the fact we are testing out so we are using Self signed certificate.
I created the self signed certificate through ignition 8 gateway (Networking → Webserver). My gateway is running on Windows Server 2016. Once the ssl was enabled, I went into the address bar and exported the certificate and saved it under C:\users\username.ignition\clientlauncher-data\certificate. I was able to successfully launch the visionclient launcher. Using the same methodology, I got the visionclient launcher to work from my laptop.
The same methodology did not work on Ubuntu 18.04. I was using chrome to export the certificate however in ubuntu chrome does not even allow me proceed to the website and returns with the following error(please see below).
I then used firefox and saved the certification’s …/.ignition/…/certificate folder. But when I launch the client launcher and add the gateway URL with 8043 port it says SSL certificate not found. I would really appreciate if you can help me out with this.
In a nutshell, I was able to get this to work on Windows based system however, I was unable to get this to work on Ubuntu.
