Comodo SSL for pfsense webgui

  • Hello,

    I am using local cert created in pfsense. I want to buy and use Comodo ssl for pfsense (https in green). Do anyone knows how to do it?

    Why... Just have your browser trust the CA that creates the cert you use in pfsense.

    Or use the acme client - there would be ZERO reason to buy a cert..

  • Using Comodo or another ssl certificate is not recommended?
    Which certificate will acme client use? Lets Encrypt? Is there a tutorial I can read how to use that?
    Why I want to use Comodo ssl, because I want to setup squid. And if one of the users at our company access blocked websites it will give a certificate error. I don't want to trust that self-signed ssl in each computer.

    That cert has ZERO to do with your webgui cert..

    You can use a comodo certificate for the web gui if you want to

    Use the certificate manager to create a CSR
    Submit the CSR to Comodo
    Import the certificate when you receive it
    Tell the webgui to use the certificate.

    But yeah, you can't use a "real" certificate for SSL MITM. You don't have the private key so you can't generate the spoofed certs on-the-fly. You have to deploy your own CA to all of your clients to do what you want to do.
