Hello expert,

I have instal windows server 2003.  I currently have 2 domain are running on same server. I have installed CA for one of my domain which it runs https:// but nothing work probably.  Would you please advise me...?

What do I need to do from here.  Do I need to install Active Directory before doing installation of CA? If I install AD do my server effect and run slow?  or without an Active Directory can I create a CA....

FYI:  I have installed CA on domain.com.  I also turn on server certificate at tab directory security.  When i'm running http://www.domain.com it gave me an error about SSL and required me to put an (s) https://  but when I run https://www.domain.com and I have another error page can not found... Do you have any idea?  please help...thanks

Sounds like you need to tell the webpage to require SSL
In IIS Manager, expand the local computer, and then expand the Web Sites folder.
Right-click the Web site or file that you want to protect with SSL, and then click Properties.
Under Web site identification click Advanced.
In the Advanced Web site identification box, under Multiple identities for this Web site, verify that the Web site IP address is assigned to port 443, the default port for secure communications, and then click OK. Optionally, to configure more SSL ports for this Web site, click Add under Multiple identities of this Web site, and then click OK.
On the Directory Security or File Security tab, under Secure communications, click Edit.
In the Secure Communications box, select the Require secure channel (SSL) check box

Heres the white paper on how to set up SSL on your webpage

Have you thought of using the resource kit to set up "selfSSL" ?
