Client Certificates and SSL
Posted on 2004-08-18
I am experimenting with setting up an SSL server for a future project. The setup I have now is a server (running IIS on win2k), a client (winXP Pro), and a certifying authority (win server 2k3). The server is set up to require a certificate from the client. Both the client and the server have gotten certificates from the CA. When I try to connect to the server from the client, a dialog box appears on the client asking me to select a certificate. The list box it gives me, though, is empty. If I look at the certificates from the Internet options, though, the personal certificate from my CA is listed.
Is there something I am not doing, or does anyone have any ideas about this? Both the client and the server have the CA listed under their trusted sites, so the certificates should be verifiable. Any help would be appreciated.
