  4. Click the Browse button under the Select certificate file field.

    The Certificate window.

  5. In the Certificate type field, specify the public or private certificate type:
    • If the PKCS #12 container value is selected, specify the certificate file and the password.
    • If the X.509 certificate value is selected:
      1. Specify the private key file (one with the *.prk or *.pem extension).
