In this guide, we'll go through the process of importing PFX SSL certificate into EveryonePrint consisting of a PKCS key pair.
I - Create a new KeyStore
- Open Keystore Explorer and click Create a new KeyStore
- Select New KeyStore Type : JKS
- Choose to first Import Key Pair
- Choose the Import Key Pair Type : PKCS #12.
- Browse and select your original .pfx Key Pair and enter the associated Decryption Password.
- You will be prompted to create a New Key Pair Entry Password of your choice (this is used later when adding keystore to EveryonePrint):
- The importation should be done:
- You now have to save the keystore. Click on the icon disk:
- You have to set a Keystore Password. In this example, the password "mysecret" was chosen for both Keypair and Keystore password.
- Save the keystore file to the EveryonePrint etc folder, by default in:
- <EOP install dir>\etc
II - Apply new KeyStore:
- Open <EOP install dir>\etc directory
- Make a backup copy of the files called jetty-ssl.xml and jetty-ssl-terminalapi.xml
- Open both files with a text editor like Notepad
- Change the keystore entries to use the new keystore file, and enter passwords in 3 places
- While we're here, we can also change from default 9443 port to standard HTTPS port 443, so end users can enter a URL in their browser without specifying the port.
Warning: before doing this change make sure that no other application (for example IIS server) is already using this port:
- Open a command window and type : netstat -ano -p tcp
- Look for :443 in the "Local Address" column
- If this port is already in use, you may keep port 9443 and provide end users with the complete URL : https://<everyoneprint-server>:9443
- Save the xml file and restart EveryonePrint Web Service, and now you should be able to confirm the working certificate in the browser.
- If the Web interface is inaccessible, any Web server related errors are logged to the file:
- <EOP install dir>\logs\eopwebservice.log
- Check this log file for any error
- In doubt contact our Customer Support Center or simply drop and email with your question to: [email protected] and provide the whole eopwebservice.log file
