TLS and SSL Certificate Install Help

You can access your web site or API over HTTPS using the Conveyor 'Remote URL' from a different device.

To avoid warnings and errors, you will need to install Conveyor's "self-signed" root certificate, which will cause your device to trust all certificates issued by Conveyor from your development machine (you only need to do as it applies to all projects).

Below are instructions for Android, iOS and other Windows machines








Install certificate on Android

Please note that your device will need a PIN set in order to install any certificates to the device. These instructions will not apply to older versions of Android such as v4 and older.

  1. On the Android device: Download the Conveyor certificate from your developer machine, by visiting
    https://<your Remote URL>/conveyor_root.crt
  2. The browser should block you, click 'Advanced' to show the 'Proceed to ...' link
  3. Which will then download the file
  4. After download it should open the certificate automatically for import, give it a name and make sure it is "Used for VPN and apps"
  5. Now modify the browser URL to point to the main page, it should show the green lock. Also any other clients on the device using the Remote URL should work too







Install certificate on iOS

In this example we used an iPad.

  1. On the iOS device: Download the Conveyor certificate from your developer machine, by visiting
    https://<your Remote URL>/conveyor_root.crt
  2. The browser should block you, click 'Show Details' to show the 'visit this website' link
  3. Another warning, click 'Visit WebSite'
  4. Which will then download the file, click 'Allow' to install the certificate
  5. Click 'Install'
  6. Click 'Install'
  7. Click 'Install'
  8. Back in Safari, modify the URL to the Remote URL for the main page, it should load without warnings







Install certificate on Windows machines

The root certificate should automatically be installed on your development machine running Conveyor, but it can be installed as needed on any Windows machine.

  1. On the other Windows device: Download the Conveyor certificate from your developer machine, by visiting
    https://<your Remote URL>/conveyor_root.crt
    The browser should block you with a warning, ignore the warning and continue, to download the file.
    If you have difficulty with this step, if it won't work, you can download the file on your development machine by visiting the same URL and then copy the .crt file to the other Windows machine.
  2. Open the conveyor_root.crt that was downloaded and click "Install Certificate"
  3. Click Next to install for "Current User"
  4. Choose "Place all certificates in the following store", click "Browse" and choose "Trusted Root Certification Authorities"
  5. Choose "Yes"
  6. Back in the browser, modify the URL to the Remote URL for the main page, it should load without warnings
