ActiveSync Certificate needs what Domain Name?

gateguard asked
Last Modified: 2008-02-01

I have Exchange 2003 and my firewall is ISA2004.  I have published activesync as:


The device I'm using to connect to activesync is a Samsung i760, running Windows Mobile 6.

Activesync works fine using http, but when I try to switch to https, it fails.  

The certificate I'm using is one I generated in-house so there is no trusted root, which is the problem (I assume).

So I'm going to buy a certificate from godaddy but I just want to make sure before I buy (not that it's expensive but it's a hassle if it doesn't work):

What is the correct name of the certificate I should be buying?

activesync.mydomain.com  (which is the published name of the connection in public dns and on my firewall) ?

or something else ?
