About certificate warnings
Access to the management tool and the public access interface Login page occur through a
secure connection (SSL/TLS). An X.509 certificate is used to validate this connection. The
default X.509 certificate installed on the controller for SSL/TLS for access to the management
tool and the public access interface is not registered with a certificate authority. It is a self-
signed certificate that is attached to the default IP address (192.168.1.1) for the controller's
LAN port. As a result, certificate warnings will appear at login until you install a valid, trusted
certificate on the controller.
The host name in the currently installed SSL certificate is automatically assigned as the
domain name of the controller. You do not have to add this name to your DNS server for it to
be resolved. The controller intercepts all DNS requests it receives on the wireless or LAN
ports. It resolves any request that matches the certificate host name by returning the IP
address assigned to the wireless port. All other DNS requests are forwarded to the
appropriate DNS servers as configured on the Network > DNS page.
This means that once a valid, trusted certificate is installed on the controller, users will no
longer see a certificate warning message when logging in.
