5.4     Yet Other Miscellaneous Operations


We further describe the other operations hard to categorize.


 

5.4.1   Security Certificate on  Browsers


Since we need to access netLD  server with HTTPS, security certification error is issued on a browser when you access the netLD  instance. Ignoring the error and accessing netLD’s interactive interface via a browser is completely safe, but you can also issue and install  SSL certificate to suppress the error message.  While the operation is instructed with Internet Explorer, the similar method can also be applied to the other browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla  Firefox.


Installing SSL  Certificate


This instruction is for IE only. For the other browsers, refer to the guide provided by the browser vendor.

Start Internet Explorer browser and connect to netLD  server, and select


Continue  to this website (not recommended).

Follow the following steps to update the SSL Certificate after the netLD installa- tion. These steps are only for updating the SSL Certificate and are not required while upgrading netLD itself.


1. Change  directory  to the netLD install directory directory in a command prompt.  e.g. cd  c:ˇProgram  FilesˇNet  LineDancerˇJavaˇbin


2. Enter the following commands to delete the existing SSL certificate. keytool

-delete -alias  ziptie -keystore ../../osgi-configˇ.keystore  -storepass

ziptie

-keyalg RSA  -dname  "CN=netLD-server.logicvein.com, OU=Tech, O=LogicVein,

L=Kawasaki,   S=Kanagawa,  c=JP"  -alias ziptie -keypass ziptie  -keystore

"../../osgi-configˇ.keystore"  -storepass ziptie -validity 3650


4. Finally, restart netLD service with net stop netld and net start  netld.
