WLSE Express - OpenSSL certificate translating issue

Does anyone have suggestions for converting a .PFX file to .PEM? I can't unzip / am getting an error when trying to install the latest version off of I need to perform this conversion for WLSE to accept the certificates. (This is needed for WLSE Express to become a AAA Radius server.) Thanks. Russ

Re: WLSE Express - OpenSSL certificate translating issue

When you install an SSL certificate on a BBSM server, it enables visitors to verify the site's authenticity and communicate with it securely through SSL encryption, which protects confidential information, such as credit card numbers, online forms, and financial data from interception and hacking.

This protection is accomplished by using "HTTPS" when coding the page sets. SSL comes in two strengths, 40 bit and 128 bit, which refer to the length of the "session key" that every encrypted transaction generates. The longer the key, the more difficult it is to break the encryption code.

If you are using RADIUS or credit card page sets, you must install an SSL certificate for end users to gain access to the Internet.
