Use SSL Cert on SBS for mobile device with DynDns

Is it possible to generate a certificate with the public domainname if we use DynDns?

we have a name linked to <ourserver>.dyndns.org.


I've setup several configs for mobile connections to SBS servers but never with DynDns, always with static IP's.

Off course it's possible to create a certificate with any Common Name, if you use your own Private CA or with a tool like SelfCert. This can be used if you don't mind importing your own (root) cert on the client devices .

If you want to purchase a Public certificate that is trusted by most devices out-of-the-box (for instance Verisign, goDaddy) , these are usually only issued to the holder of the Domain Name (in this case dyndns.org). Since you don't own that domain, it could become tricky... you could try a couple of vendors to see if they are a bit less "strict".

With the cost of registering a domain name being cheaper than the certificate itself, why not register a domain name? (you could even forward that domain to the dyndns.org domain name so having a static IP is not a "must")

Yeah. We will request a static IP at the ISP, because with the current internet line they own, certain ports are blocked at ISP level. So we'll go for an office line with static IP.


thx for the info, can be useful for future installations :)
