Setting up access to Rights Management from client applications

Client applications must be set up to connect to Rights Management to protect documents, open policy-protected documents, and connect to the Rights Management web pages. See Acrobat Help or the appropriate RightsManagementExtension Help for information about configuring the connection within the client application.

Rights Management is accessed via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). You must install the website’s certificate in your certificate store so that you can access Rights Management through the client applications.

See Configuring SSL for information on SSL.

These instructions are specific to Internet Explorer, but you can install the certificate by using any supported web browser. For more information, see the Help for your browser.

Install the server certificate using Internet Explorer

  1. Open your web browser and type the base URL for Rights Management in the Address box. For example, type https://[host]:[port]. A Security Alert dialog box appears.

  2. Click View Certificate, and then click Install Certificate and select the defaults for installation. The certificate needs to be installed in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities.

  3. Close your browser session.

  4. Open another browser window and type the same URL in the Address box. A Security Alert dialog should not appear. This test confirms that the certificate is properly installed.
