Certificate for OFTP2 Communication

Good day,

We have purchase a certificate from OdetteCA for OFTP2 communication.
I have never worked with certificates before.

But I have applied and generated the certificate from the incorrect computer.
Do we need to re-apply for the certificate via the certificate authority from the correct computer OR can I simply transfer this certificate from one machine to another and it will still be a valid certificate?

I have asked the authority but they simply do not give any clear answers. They just point me to the help file all the time and in the help file it is not even clear if this is possible.

Thanks alot!

You need to proceed with re-issue procedure within CA authority, which is normally available 7 days upon certificate issue date. Your certificate with CSR generated from wrong computer will NOT be valid!
So, follow your certificate issue URL link once again (you probably got it to e-mail) and select re-issue.

Thanks for the reply:
But here is the email reply from the CA:

Dear ******,
           As long as the certificate was downloaded to the computer from which the CSR was generated, you should be able to export the complete certificate from that machine and import it to another machine.

Best regards

Odette CA
