Certificate Installation

The SSL encryption is used to protect the information transferred between a user and the TeamWox system. The transmitted information is signed using the special certificate which is installed in the system. A certificate issued by MetaQuotes Software Corp. is installed in the system by default. This certificate is untrusted (self-signed) that is why the browsers may show the corresponding warning when trying to enter the system.

The lower part of the authorization window contains a link for downloading the MetaQuotes Software CA root certificate. It is recommended to add it to the list of trusted certificates of your browser/operating system. The description of this process for different browsers is given below.

The MetaQuotes Software CA certification authority should also be added in the trusted list on a user's computer (in the storage of the operating system) in order to work with documents using WebDAV.

Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome

These browsers use the storage of the MS Windows operating system, that is why it is necessary to install the certificate there. Launch the downloaded file of the root certificate MetaQuotesSoftwareCA.cer:
