I think you'd need only steps 5-8, but you better test that. The
previous steps are to make sure the certificate is validated (just the
opposite from the linkk you mentioned) and that the system does ot try
to use Windows credentials.

I think that if you do nohing, by defalt the certificate is validated,
leading to step 7-8.

I have no definite answer. Loading a file with all the details of the

don't think they came up with any solution, so I don't think it can be

Test it is my best advice, then if it works, tell you users that all
they have to do is to accept the certificate on the first connection.
