Hi,
After Deploy OCS 2007 Std Edition, in my internal network all was working fine.
When i decide to deploy Edge Server and reading Microsoft documentation about Edge Deployment,
i found  a lot of unanswered questions.
The real problem is that when i try to connect to my edge server from outside of my company with a PC that is not a member of my AD i have problem with the Certification, an when i try to connect with my Notebook that is a member of AD, everything was working.
I have read all of the similar questions in your website and i don't like to bother you with same questions, but is it possible to use certificate made of AD CA Authority for the external Network Adapter or i must use a Public CA Authority.
I have done all of the steps that you have mention in your answers,
like, Certificate must be in Trust Root CA,
but i steel have this Certification issue.
I use Consolidated Edge Topology without reverse Proxy (ISA Server).
I use a Psychical Machine with 2003 Sp2 R2 Windows Server member of AD as Edge Server.
3 certificates
1 for internal network and 2 for external network.
The name of the certificates uses the Internal And External FQDN's.
Thank you Very Much For you time.

If you need further information i can inform you.

Hi VangelisK,

You could use an internal certificate, but it is not recommended because you will have to import the root CA on every client. Look here for the steps configuring a certificate on the different interfaces: http://www.ocspedia.com/Certificates/AccessEdge/AccessEdge_Cert.htm

We have had OCS setup for a couple of years now and our cert is about to expire..
We had several SAN's but I don't think we are actually using any of them..
I read this here http://www.ocspedia.com/Certificates/AccessEdge/ExternalCA/CreateCertPublic_AccessEdge.htm and it looks like the only SAN we'd need is the Internal FQDN of our Access EDGE server..
However the certificate we are currently using doesn't have this, so I'm wondering if it's possible to setup or Access EDGE to only use the sip.domainname.com SN..?
Are there any problems with doing this such as address book not working etc etc..?

If so, what are the SAN's we require (I recall when we first set this up we also had to have the SN as our first SAN due to a bug in ISA 2006)

BTW: our EDGE box is not a member of our domain, although our ISA box is..
