Certificate options

 

Verify the Certification Authority (CA)

1.Open the certificate, then verify by which Certification Authority the certificate has been issued by, in the General tab.

 

 

2.Verify that the Certification Authority is properly installed in the certificate store.

 

 

 

Remember a certificate

It is possible for Remote Desktop Manager to remember a certificate when prompted to verify it.

 

 

For the current session only: click Continue.

Until the cache is cleared: click Continue and Remember.

 

Always make sure that the certificate is valid before clicking on any of those choices. Verify the certificate by clicking View Certificate.

 

 

Certificate options

 

Navigate to File – Options – Security – Certificate security to manage options related to certificates.

 

 

Ignore application certificate errors

Enable this option to disable the application certificate validation. This is not recommended, as it would compromise confidentiality and integrity of communications between the client and the server, and could expose the application to potential threats.

 

Reset Known Certificates

Use this option to clear the cached certificates. All certificates would need to be validated again.
