I am trying to install an SSL certificate on my Zyxel NWA50AX Pro. I’m running firmware v6.65(1). When I go to: Configuration>Object>Certificate>My Certificates>Import, it gives error:

errno: -13011

errmsg: PKI certificate type is not supported.

I generated the self-signed certificate with PFsense in PCKS12 format. The certificate has file extension .p12 and size 4kb. What is the procedure to install this certificate?

    Hi @khwatson ,

    Could you verify if you entered the correct password that was set during the export of the PKCS #12 file?

    Additionally, to ensure the successful import of the certificate, please adhere to the following guidelines:

    • The name of the imported certificate must be different from any certificate currently stored in the AP.
    • Ensure there are no spaces in the certificate's filename before attempting to import it.

    Judy:

    I chose to export the certificate from pfsense without a password and tried to input into the access point without the password. When I exported and imported with a password, everything worked. The original error message "PKI certificate type is not supported" is misleading and needs to be improved.

    Thank you for your support.
