    Hi @MDK101,

    I hope you already solved your issue as it seems this slipped through the cracks. That said, for anyone else that comes across this the steps necessary to use client cert authentication are laid out in the docs: https://docs.solace.com/Security/Configuring-Client-Authentication.htm#Client-Cert

    Hope that helps!
