Browser Certificate - Apology for Asking

Hello,

I am embarrassed asking this... but having tried for a long time and having read loads of sites and posts I am no closer.

I have the usual browser is not secure when accessing my Proxmox server...

My setup... I use Kubuntu 22.04 as my PC with Brave Browser.

I've read this page... https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Certificate_Management and have managed to copy the pve-www.key and pve-root-ca.pem files from the Proxmox server to the /home/<username>/.ssh directory my Kubuntu workstation.

I also read this page... https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Import_certificate_in_browser but it only talks about Windows, and it doesn't cover Linux.

I also read this page... https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-ssh-keys-on-ubuntu-22-04 and attempted to import into Proxmox, but the files are .key not .pem, so I tried converting them but no luck. Generating and using my own keys would be my preference as this is what I typically do on my Linux hosts. But I am happy to do anything right now to get it working.

Here's the screen capture from when I try and upload a custom certificate... (I am using this certificate for other access and it works fine)

I apologise for asking as I am sure it will be a simple fix... and related to my lack of knowledge. All I need is a nudge in the right direction, be that a web page or documentation.

Thanks, Mark

So I managed to upload my own self signed cert to the Proxmox server... I assume that is a good thing?

So now all I need to do is have my browser on the Kubuntu workstation have the key installed? I think?

I know my question above is probably annoying, and I should just work it out. Unfortunately I am genuinely stuck... and I just need a nudge in the right direction. We all have to start somewhere. I will go to some other server forums and see if there's any advice.
