since FMS 16 we have a red padlock when no certificate is installed.

Until now, I was using my FM files through my Lan only -> no certificate needed.

Before I change anything I would like to have some advice about the following point.


Now some files will be publish with WebDirect.

I bought a certificate and I will install it on my domain name.

But should I install the certificate in my FMS16 as well?

The files will be encrypted 2 times?


If no, should I check the "Use SSL connection" button in FMS?

From the web the file will be encrypted by the installed certificate on my domain name, isn't it?


If yes, does FMS use this certificate only for the local connexion and do not encrypt for the web?
