Read the Landonline terms and conditions – Schedule 1 Digital Certificate user obligations.

You will need your:

  • Landonline user ID, for example userid001
  • DC reference number (emailed to your Trusted Contact), for example 12345678, and
  • DC authorisation code (emailed to you), for example XXXX-XXXX-XXXX.

Technical information

  • DC Loader does not work on Windows 32 bit operating systems. If you have a 32 bit version of Windows installed you will need to upgrade to 64 bit or alternatively install and run DC Loader on a different device, then transfer your downloaded DC to your 32 bit environment.
  • You may need to update the firewall rules to ensure the DC Loader can call Entrust to retrieve the DC. The following addresses and ports should be opened:
    • 829
    • 389
    • 443
    • 80
    • 80
  • You will need to ensure that TLS 1.2 is enabled (Windows has this is ‘on’ by default)
  • DC Loader 3.1 is compatible with Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 11 and most Windows Server versions.
  • The DC Loader installation software comes packaged with a Java installer. If you have anything in place that could prevent Java from installing, the installation may fail or be incomplete.
  • If installing DC Loader to a controlled environment, you’ll need to pre-create a ‘C:\LINZ Certificates folder’ and provide Authenticated Users with Read/Write permissions.
  • Please familiarise yourself with the Landonline Terms and Conditions re Digital Certificate user obligations. 
  • Once the DC Loader is installed in your IT environment - behind the firewall - you can create a shortcut to it, and share this shortcut with your Landonline users. This will avoid having multiple copies of the installer on your system.
  • The DC Loader defaults to the C drive. If your firm chooses another pathway, you will need to ensure users have full read/write permissions to that folder for two reasons:
    • Future DC installations will overwrite existing DCs.
    • Inadequate permissions may cause issues when a DC is used to sign.
  • Using a different location to the default C:\ may result in users needing to browse and select the new file path each time they need to enter their passphrase when signing.
