Hi,
one of my clients uses a shipping app and it uses cassini webserver which needs a certificate to access the ups site and for some reason the ups api which uses that certificate has stopped working last week and someone said that we have to import that certificate but i cant locate it when i went to add certificates snap in under microsoft management console.  My question was is there a way to just allow temporarily any certificate to be accepted on this server to test if the negotiation between it and the ups site will work?  Thanks.

The test certificate must be trusted by certificate publisher of webserver and
There should not be certificate mapping based on certificate pairs on web server
Then only it will work
Other wise if you lost the certificate, you need to request new one..

So the certificate trust must be set up on the web server cassini not on the windows 2003 server that this app is installed on correct?

if web server is configured for certificate pairing mapping .....then you must aquire client certificate from server to match server certificate.The web server will generate client mapping certificate through Certificate Authority.

In case of certificate trust consider below scenario
you logon to gmail
gmail is using some public certificate (geotrust)
When gmail server trust its own certificate ?
Only when it is having root certificate of issuing certificate authority (geotrust)
Now you logon to gmail server mail without any problem...because you have root certificate of geotrust certificate authority in your local certificate store
Just go to internet explorer \ internet options \ contents \ certificate tab
there you will find lots of public CA root certificates

Hope that helps.
Thanks
