Description (partial)

When downloading a webauth certificate via the WEB GUI, it often fails with error "fails to set", which is unhelpful and means nothing in particular.

The weird thing is that doing the operation via CLI typically works fine with the same certificate, so impossible to know what the GUI does not like.
On top of that GUI, forces TFTP download of cert while CLI allows for pasting PEM
