I am in the process of setting up SSL on the gateway using the Ignition Web Server configuration page. I have got through all the steps, and it looks like that part was successful on the gateway webpage, see the screenshot below.
However when I tested using the vision client, I got the message: “SSL certificate not found”.
And when I forced the client migrate from http connection to https connection I got an error which looked like the issue was with Java verifying the certificate, see the next screenshot.
I was able to get some success following these steps: Designer Launcher SSL - #2 by jcoffman
I placed the root certificate on my local computer under: .ignition\clientlauncher-data\certificates and it accepted the ssl certificate in the java ignition vision client. At the moment it seems like the certificate is signed by a CA that isn’t included in Java’s default keystore. However I don’t think it is viable to do this for all onsite users, so we need to look for a better solution. (I don’t have remote access to every pc on site that runs the client)
Is there a way this could be done on the gateway or is it a problem with how the certificate was created?
