Setup Summary

In order to connect to the SSO Proxy Server, it is necessary to update your browser proxy settings so that web traffic is routed through the SSO Proxy Server.

Traffic routed through the SSO Proxy Server will cause browser errors and warnings when connecting to HTTPS sites. To prevent these errors and allow for normal internet browsing, it is necessary to install the SSO Root Certificate as a Trusted Root Certificate Authority on your computer.

Note for Administrators:

  • The Root Certificate used by the SSO Server is NOT the same as the SSL Certificate used by the Password Server.

Installing a SSO Server Root Certificate

Go to the SSO Server tab of the Pleasant Password Server client and scroll down to the section Installing the SSO Root Certificate and follow these instructions:

  1. Click the link SSO Server Root Certificate and a dialog box Name the certificate will open up.
  2. Give the certificate any name and press OK.
  3. At this point, if your device has no PIN, password, or pattern for screen unlocking, you will be prompted to set one up (on older versions of Android, you may be prompted to set up a password for Credential Storage).
  4. The certificate should now be installed.
