CA installation problem
For Pocket PC 2002 you had to use a separate program available from Microsoft:
AddRootCert.exe (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;322956).
Copy the HKBU_CA_DER.cer to your PPC2002 device, ran the AddRootCert.exe
utility and the certificate was added to the Certificate Store.
On Pocket PC 2003 and Windows Mobile it is much easier to import a root certificate.
In most cases you don't have to use a separate utility. HKBU CA can be installed
using the File Explorer application (to be more precise: the ShellExecute function
which on its turn calls the built-in program certinst.exe). The procedure for importing
a root certificate is as follows.
     Copy the HKBU_CA_DER.cer to the device, you start File Explorer and then
simply tap the filename. Make sure that the certificate filename has the extension .cer.
On Pocket PC 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 the file has to be in DER format.


PEM certificates first line starts with: -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----) are not
supported by Pocket PC 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0. You will have to download
the DER format or convert PEM to DER by import the PEM certificate on a desktop
Windows computer and then re-export it to DER. Windows Mobile 6 supports both
DER and PEM.


Proxy issue:
     Web browsing with BU-Web need to use proxy. The proxy setting will be
injected to the client using Web Proxy Autodiscovery Protocol (WPAD) by DHCP and
DNS. This works with Firefox, Netscape and Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer
version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm had a bug which request a wrong filename
(missing last character in the file extension). Client only need to accept the default
option “Auto-configure” for proxy in the their browser to use this. Apple Safari
claimed it support WPAD. However, many version have problem with that. Version
3.04 have a major that it request the PAC file before every request it make.


Same setting based on Proxy auto-config (PAC) standard also available for those
browser that do not support WPAD.
