HP WebInspect Certificates and Authentication Time Out

I am having authentication issues when attempting to scan web applications behind a reverse web proxy. I can get to the site just fine on the system that runs that scanner but when I attempt to build my scan it times out and I never get prompted to choose my certificate (I am using CAC authentication).

What I would like to try is to load my certificate on the local machine. When I go to the default settings in WI I can see there is a selection for local machine and within that are two selections: "MY" and "ROOT" I can see there is a certificate for root but there is nothing for "MY"

How can I load my authentication certificate for there? I believe my time out issue is occurring because I am reaching across a VPN connection to my scanner and then through the WI program. Could this be the case?

I am open to any other suggestions as well.

 Your client certificate (assuming your card is inserted) should show up in "My" if you ialso check the "Current User" radio butto.  Can you find it there?
