How to install SSL Cert for Sonicwall SRA4200

Hi;

I bought a SSL Cert from Godaddy and trying to install it to a Sonicwall SRA 4200 appliance but failed.  It asked for a server.crt and a server.key files from a zip file.

I renamed my downloaded cert zip file to server.zip and rename the .cer file to server.cer but still missing a server.key file.

Can someone let me know the correct procedure to install my SSL cert?  And when I download the cert from Godaddy site, I chose the other format, because they have the format for IIS, Tomcat, etc but none for VPN Appliance.

When I install the cert, should I install it to the server cert section?

The key file is created by you when you make the csr that you sent to go daddy to ask for the cert

You have to put the 'server.key'file together with the server.crt in a zip-file.

thanks guys.  So, the server.key file is the original CSR file that generated from the SRA appliance.  Then put them together in the server.zip for import, right?
