Install My own server certificate in Windows 2000 Advanced server(Web server) and access that site it in a Client Machine

I have a web server which is running Windows 2000 Advanced server , IIS 5.0, certificate services 2.0.

I was successfull in creating a Server certificate using the document "Implement SSL on Windows 2000 IIS 5.0 Computer" from Microsoft .

When i browse the site(https://devin2) in my web server , I am able to browse the site .

Now when i browse the site sitting at a clitn Machine(https://devin2) , I am getting a Security alert which says "THIS SECURUTY CERTIFICATE WAS ISSUED BY A CERTIFICATE AUTHORITY THAT YOU HAVE NOT CHOSEN TO TRUST..."

What should i do to overcome this problem???

Please ,,,please advice

there is one thing,
if you want to overcome this problem ONLY FOR YOUR system, open Internet Explorer and go to;
tools -> internet options -> content -> certificates
then select
trusted root certification authorities
click on import and locate your file that has information about your authority...

if you need any more help, let me know

well the thing is, you can do it across your domain (via group policy) but if you want to enable this on the net, on the first step it is not possible. Because MS Internet Explorer comes with some very well known Certificate Auth. information, only the certificates issued by those ones are accepted without any warning. In the case that you are publishing your own certificates, the user will be prompted that the issuer (in this case this is you) is not on the trusted list. After this user can add you to the list but as I say if you don't have a certificate from the well known Authorities (like Global Sign, Verisign, Comodo.... ) users using your sign will be prompted as I've explained earlier
