Citrix Secure Gateway kicks certificate back as unusable during configuration
Posted on 2008-06-25
Setting up Secure Gateway to allow remote access for a customer. Installed Secure Gateway and going through the configuration, I get to where it asks you to pick the certificate to use.
I created a self-signed certificate, just to test with, and it returned that the certificate was "unusable." I figured it must have to do with the fact that it is self-signed, so I went to a certificate company online. They have a 21 day free trial for certs and I was told from another admin that their test certs work fine with the Gateway, so it would give me the opportunity to make sure I got everything right before I spend the money on the certificate.
I got the test certificate, installed that company's certs in root (it was listed as a necessary step for the test cert to work) and then installed the test cert. Running the Gateway configuration again, it shows up just fine in the list of options, I choose it, and again, I end up with "the server certificate specified is unusable."
Not sure what I am missing here, any ideas?
