  4. On the Generate Certificate or Private Key dialog:
    1. Enter a name for the certificate.
    2. For the Type, select Self-Signed.
    3. Fill in the remaining fields. See Certificate Settings.
    4. Click the Generate button.
  5. The new certificate is added to the Certificates list.
  6. Select the new certificate in the Active column to activate it.
  7. Optionally, delete the old certificate.
  8. Click Reboot and click Confirm for the change to take effect.

A dialog appears informing you when the reboot is complete.
