OK, I'm installing Prentation server 4 and WI on one computer, and Secure Gateway and WI on another computer.  During the installation process for the SG it will as me for a certificate, which I was planning to purchase from digicert.  

The folks on the outside will be entering throught the website secure.billsmoonko.com, what do I set up the cert to say, and can you sketch the process a bit.  Thanks,

are you asking what the name of the cert should be?  if so it should match your web domain name so in this case it will be secure.billsmoonko.com

Yes, that is my question.  
Will that work for LAN, VPN, and web users?

yes it will work for anyone at any location as long as they have internet access.  Also note that when using CSG all info will be encrypted using SSL.  On a LAN or VPN this isn't really necessary so you can set it up so LAN & VPN users don't use SSL.

They would have to use a different URL for the site so that is the downside.  For instance you can configure it so that your LAN & VPN users will use:

http://secure.billsmoonko.com

while everyone else will use:

https://secure.billsmoonko.com

The only difference is in the http or https.  If your employees will use the LAN sometimes and the external connection I would just have everyone use the https so they don't have to remember 2 different URLs (user's don't usually type the http anyways so that might be more confusing to remember).  However, if your LAN & VPN users are always in this location when using citirx and the people connecting from the outside will only use external connections then it might be worth it to enable both connections.

one other thing: don't be hesitant to post follow-up questions instead of posting a new 500 pt question.  Since this question is directly related to your last question it is totally acceptable to post follow up questions as long as they remain on topic.  Especially for 500 point questions - you should make the experts work a little harder for the points.  We totally appreciate the extra points but just wanted to mention that.  If your follow-up questions go into a new subject or will require a lot of extra work than the original question, then a new question would be appropriate.

Makes perfect sense to me, as does your comment about the 500 point questions.  For me, time is very important right now, and as I change gears it makes sense to add another question.
For example, when installing the WI on the new server, i had a java error,
"web interface setup required J# version 1.1 or later to be installed"
I just downloaded java 1.4.2, but I get the same error.
Sure, this could be a follow up to my SG WI question, but is seems like a new issue to me.

and for me, the 500 points is as much for expediency as anything.  I'm behind the 8 ball right now.

ok I agree this is a new issue but I'll go ahead and answer since your previous 2 questions were related and you awarded me points for both... It's not a big deal either way - I just wanted to point it out in case you thought you had to post a new Q each time.  

J# is actually different than java but this should be part of the WI installation.  During the install did it ask you to install J#, or maybe you accidentally cancelled out of it?  Re-installing won't hurt anything so go ahead and try that, and make sure you are using the correct install files and not just a separate install file for WI only (you can download all the install files from mycitrix.com).

I just did the install in this order,
access suite console  (note i uninstalled SG and was going to install it after the WI, as that is what I thought i read in your post)
web interface
my error is
"web interface setup requires J# version 1.1 or later to be installed"

Last time the "tech" installed this I remember something similar and I believe it was related to Java.  
I just got runtime 1.4.2, I'm looking for a newer version.  I believe 1.53 or something will do the trick.

here, this is what you want: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=E3CF70A9-84CA-4FEA-9E7D-7D674D2C7CA1&displaylang=en

Microsoft Visual J# is different than Java.  It's used for running .NET applications (not java)

found it
to install J# from the citrix web page, posted for future help
Web Interface

• MetaFrame Access Suite Console 4.0

• ASP.NET and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Version 5.0 or 6.0 (Windows components)
When you install Windows Server 2003, these components are not installed by default. If you are using Windows Server 2003, before running the Web Interface installer, configure your server by adding the role of Web Server. Then, use your Microsoft Windows Server 2003 installation disk to install ASP.NET and IIS.
If you are using Windows 2000 Server and installed IIS before installing the .NET Framework update, run the ASP.NET registration tool.

• Visual J# .NET Version 1.1. Autorun.exe installs this product automatically. You can also install it manually from the Support\Jsharp11 folder of the MetaFrame Presentation Server CD or image.

actually I think I just figured out why it's not installing.  You probably don't have IIS installed on the server and ASP .NET.  Go into the Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components

Highlight Application server and click Details.. then check the boxes for:

ASP .NET
Enable network COM+ access
Internet Information Services (IIS)
