Dimension Certificate

I have a Dimension server hosted on the cloud. Every time clients access the server the will encounter the certificate warning Site not secure. Can the firebox or dimension self sign its certificate for it to be exported? And can I import it to the clients firebox and web browser to prevent these warning pages?

    Hello Greg,

    The default Dimension web server certificate is generated by the WatchGuard Agent and the certificate's Subject does not include any verifiable information. Your web client would not be able to validate the chain of trust even if you were to add the signing root certificate to your client's CA store.

    To get rid of the certificate warning, generate a CSR from Certificate Management tools and get it signed by a public CA. Import the signed certificate into Dimension.
