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?

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?
