I'm behind a corporate proxy, and we have Windows PCs with root ca certs pre-installed so SSL works with the proxy. Within my PC, I'm spinning up Linux VMs for testing, and so I have a need to get those certs installed within the VM so I can hit whatever SSL URL I need (github cloning etc). I've tried a few methods to export the certs from Windows and import them into Ubuntu, but as of yet I am unable to access SSL from within the VM.
This answer gave me the best idea for what format to export the cert in from Windows (base-64 .cer). After I export the
.cer files and copy them into place in the VM, I rename them with
After I add the certs to the
usr/share/ca-certificates directory and run
update-ca-certificates the certs do get symlinked into
/etc/ssl/certs but still no SSL traffic.
This is on a Windows 7 host, Ubuntu 12.04 guest.
