How do I set-up a Web Server Certificate on a W2003 SBS R2 system.
Posted on 2006-11-28
I am installing W2003 SBS R2 for the first time and am trying to get the internet connection set-up. I have entered the DNS servers, but am stuck on screen that is requiring me to setup a web server certificate. My option is to either setup a web server certificate or to use a trusted certificate. I have never had to do this before and am confused on what I need to do. I am setting this up for a client that has simple internet connection needs and don't want to make a mistake in the setup that will take me hours to correct. I would appreciate your help and realize that this may be a basic question that I am simply not understanding. Can someone tell me exactly what I need to do and/or type in this field. My server is called Server1 and I have a local DNS name. Is this what I use? Do I need to contact the ISP for setup help? I contacted Adelphia (which is what I use at home) and they said there are no settings and they do not support servers? I need expert help to get past this setup problem. I thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
