Hello, I have a Citrix Access Gateway that I am trying to install a Thawte SSL cert on.
I have purchased the Certificate from Thwate, I can't figure out how the heck to install it.
I should say I can't remember how to install it, as I did this 3 years ago.
Do I also need to create a .csr from the CAG also, or do I just install the Thawte cert?
If so, how?

Can someone provide some step by step instructions?
Thank you

The cert from Thawte is not a .crt file, it is just a txt file.
What do I need to do to create a .crt file from the txt file Thawte send me?
It can't be as easy as changing the file extension.

9/10 times it is just as easy as renaming the file extension, actually.  If it starts with ----begin certificate--- and ends with ---end certificate---- then it is in base64 / PEM format and can be safely renamed to .crt.  If it is a bunch of garbled text and non-text characters and lots of boxes, it is probably in DER format - again many times you can safely rename it.  If this does not work then we can look into official conversion scripts.

Okay, I am completly confused, so I hope someone with Citrix Access Gateway experience can chime in, if you haven't already.
I purchased this SSL cert through Thawte.  Do I also need to create a csr from the CAG?
Is a csr also a certificate?
Please let me know.

I renamed the certificate that Thawate sent me to a .crt file, I then tried to upload it from the CAG admin tool.  Unfortunately it failed!
Any other suggestions?
Any help would be most appreciated!
Thanks

My original post should have stated that this is a renewal of a exisiting cert on the CAG.
I don't know if that would make difference or not?
Please help!
