Adding certificate to use with a tcpip endpoint on a http address

i have a microfocus enterprise server that accepts request on a http address
localhost:9019
endpoint protocol = tcp
endpoint port = 9019
the endpoint has ssl activated using these files
certificate C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\DemoCA\srvcert.pem
keyfile C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\DemoCA\srvkey.pem
and the passcode is in a config file to be used when the service starts
i have added the pem file CARootcert.pem to the CA certificates in the postman settings
the client certificates seems to only support https hostnames
i do not have a crt file or a pfx file just a keyfile and a passphrase
i have tried various auth protocols and none seem to suit or work
if i add certificates for an endoint do i use the auth protocol of none
the democa location was created by a microfocus utility program that generates testing certificates for windows and solaris with the following certificate values
solaris11
Organization Name (eg, company) [Micro Focus]: BUPA

Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) [Communications Security]: IT

Common Name (eg, your name or your server’s hostname) [meldvbospoc01]:

Email Address [support@microfocus.com]: gus.hein@bupa.com.au

Locality Name (eg, city) [Newbury]: melbourne

State or Province Name (full name) [Berkshire]: victoria

Country Name (2 letter code) [GB]: au

messages are sent using json or soap messages
any assistance would be appreciated

Hello mate,

I don’t know MicroFocus, but the SSL certificates you have configured have nothing to do with the authentication mechanism.

The SSL certificates are for validating the HTTPS connection.

What happens if you enter this address in Postman:

https://localhost:9019

There is nothing listening at the address

https://localhost:9019

the endpoint is a tcp endpoint that is secured as per the attached wsdl file that has the endpoint address in it that

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>

I have watched a few of you your tube postman tutorials and found them very informative

(Attachment PingSoapS.wsdl is missing)

TCP is just the transport layer.

The most likely protocol for the application layer is HTTP.

Is MicroFocus not launching a SOAP web service? Or is it just a proxy?

Microfocus is receiving the soap message and processing the content

Passing the data onto a cobol web service

So how do you plan to use Postman?

I want to use postman to send soap and json messages to the endpoint that is secured
