  1. Open the iPlanet Web Server Administration Server.
  2. On the Servers tab select your server and click Manage.
  3. Click the Security tab.

  5. Under Certificate For: select This Server.
  6. Cryptographic Module should be Internal (Software).

  9. Select Message Text (with Headers).
  10. Open a Web browser and go to the URL that appears in the confirmation email you received from Entrust. The Entrust SSL Certificate is in the section named "Entrust SSL Certificate". The certificate looks similar to this example:
