SSL certificate? You can use a home grown certificate, but I don't. I always use a purchased SSL certificate, usually from RapidSSL. I think that it is a false economy, especially when the home grown certificate expires and you have to install the replacement certificate on to every machine.

You have to make a change to the configuration of every client machine that is going to use RPC over HTTPS.

Any risk? It is a pile of registry settings, so no more than any other feature config. I have done it on loads of production servers without any problems and no downtime.

I have a section on my own web site on setting up the server: http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http.asp
