Arthur, I don't currently run any BQ boxen, but I recall that you could 
enter a chained cert on the RaQ550; can't you do it from the BQ 
interface?

Or are you wondering from where you get the chained cert?

A shared cert is something you implement yourself; generally we create a 
secure.example.com domain, where we replace example.com with our domain 
name, and then under that domain we create folders, and give each user 
ftp access to that folder.

For example, if the user's main site is:

http://www.example.net/

then you can give him an ftp account to write to the 'example.net' 
inside the web-directory of your "secure.example.com" domain, and he 
can call that in his code as:

https://secure.example.com/example.net/

I don't think you're up, or I'd call you.  Feel free to call me if you'd 
like, but if you get voicemail try again at +1 909 266-9209, which 
forwards to my cellphone.
