  3. Browse to the rootCA.pem security certificate file, select it, click Open, and then click Next.
    Note: Install the rootCA.pem file and not the file that the browser prompts you to install. The rootCA.pem file certifies your device for any MAP Gateway you use. If you install the file that the browser prompts you to install instead, you need to add a new security certificate for each new MAP Gateway device that you use.
