Have a IIS6 site and want to shut off Client Certificate checking.  MSDN says to set MD_CERT_NO_REVOC_CHECK to true.  I assume this is in registry, but where?  Need quick help.

    It is set in the Metabase.

    cscript.exe adsutil set w3svc/certcheckmode 1  
    (this will disable certificate revocation checking for the entire server)


    cscript.exe adsutil set w3svc/<siteinstancenumber>/certcheckmode 1  
    (this will disable checking for the specified web site)

    Run this from the c:\inetpub\adminscripts directory at a command prompt.

    I believe you will need to restart IIS for it to take effect.
