Certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA)
Create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)
A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is a request sent to a Certificate Authority (CA) to authenticate the
credentials contained within the certificate.
We recommend installing a Root Certificate from the CA on your computer before creating the CSR.
1. Start your web browser.
2. Type "http://machine's IP address" in your browser's address bar (where "machine's IP address" is the
machine's IP address).
If you are using a Domain Name System or enable a NetBIOS name, you can type another name, such
as "SharedPrinter" instead of the IP address.
If you enable a NetBIOS name, you can also use the node name.
The NetBIOS name can be found in the Network Configuration Report.
For Mac, access Web Based Management by clicking the machine's icon on the Status Monitor
