Obtain certificate from server without being in the domain.

Behind a firewall I have all the workstations in a workgroup and a server on DC.

Can a computer from a workgroup obtain a certificate from the server without being in the same domain? The reason why these workstations are not on the domain because logon is really slow using the server as a DC.

Also, how effective is L2TP without using certificate, just the protocols itself?

Thanks.

Is this an SBS server?
But yes you don't need to be on the domain to install the certificate.

Just logon to RWW: https://FQDN/Remote and when the certificate warning comes up instead of saying yes, click on install certificate and follow prompts.
If you have IE7 let me know , the process is a bit different.

For VPN: Use the small bussiness server connection = SBS VPN. It's PPTP and works OK.
You can download that from RWW too.

Right click on IE7 and run as admin. Than import the certificate and put them in the trusted root.
