How do I get a SSL Certificate for TS Gateway?

I'm thinking of setting up a TS gateway to access my terminal services via the internet. I have set up a working test-server with a self-signed certificate. But that requires me to have users manually install the certificate on there machines. Obviously this is not wanted.

How do I get a "real" SSL certificate? I would like one for my "tsgateway.domain.com" and also for "domain.com". The latter being just for normal web-servers. Is there a difference in SSL certs for TS-gateway vs webservers (running linux)?

I'm confused. Any recommended companies for buying this (as cheap as possible)?

Verisign and Entrust are probably two of the biggest you will find.  Verisign offer a  14 day trail period for SSL certs, you get them at the following links:

http://www.verisign.com/server/trial/faq/index.html ------- This is for the Root CA cert

http://www.verisign.com/support/verisign-intermediate-ca/trial-secure-server-intermediate/index.html  ---------- This is for the trail period intermediate cert that will work for 14 days.

Hope that helps

Okay. I've done some reasearch on my own.

I see there is something called wildcard certificates. I found that digicert sells wildcards certificates for under $500. Wich is probably what i need then? But i have a mailserver, webserver and this TS gateway server. Can I use the same wildcard certificate for different servers? I'm not sure on how the CSR Creation process works. For me it seams like it gives a specific CSR from the server i'm creating it from, thus limiting it to the server wich the CSR was created from? Is this true or false? I used win2008 IIS "Create certificate request" function to generate the CSR. But i want to be able to use it on my two linux servers also.
