Hi Experts,

              This is all about calling webservices from a client thr SSL.
So i used makecert to create ROOT CA, server certificate, client certificate.

coomand for creating ssl certificates :

Root CA
makecert -r -n "CN=My Own Test CA" -sv root.key root.cer

Server certificate
 makecert -iv root.key -ic root.cer -eku -n ""

client cerficate
makecert -iv root.key -ic root.cer -eku -n "CN=Myname"

 then i installed ROOT CA to trusted, configured server cerificate in IIS.

Then when i try to access my web service in my browser its throwing "page cannot be displayed"...

Am i missing out anything or i should use certificate service for creating cerficates(bcos makecert is only for testing purposes).

Can anyone guide me step-by-step to run my webservice in Secure channel.
