Hi All

I have a .p12 certificate and password which have been sent to me. I imported these into Internet Explorer but am getting an error when opening the page intended to use it.

I have contacted the support desk in question and they have told me to convert it to a .pem certificate and no more information has been forthcoming.

How do I do this.

I am using Windows.

Cheers

use http://sourceforge.net/projects/xca - easy gui tool to do exactly that.

however, you shouldn't need to do that - just rename the .p12 file to .pfx and double-click it, and it should import to IE as-is. Importing PEM files with private keys to IE is a major pain, and i usually convert those *to* p12 files to save myself that effort.
