How to get and install certificates for RTP over HTTP and for PDAs within school
Posted on 2008-10-28
I've inherited a network and system setup within a high school.
Most things work well, but certificates for Exchange Server are not set correctly.
At present, the certificate presented to external connections via OWA has the internal network name, rather than the url used to access the server.
I want to enable and ensure that:
Staff can access emails from home through Outlook or OWA without encountering certificate errors
Staff can Synchronise outlook on HP IPAQ 114 PDAs without encountering certificate errors
Self-certification doesn't seem to be an option, as I'm already getting "there is a problem because certificate is self-signed" on the PDAs.
How do I decide where to get the certificate from?
Where should it be installed?
Staff accessing from home could be using XP or Vista
All school computers / laptops used internally ar XP Pro
PDAs are all HP IPAQ 114 with Windows Mobile 6
Exchange Server is: Windows Server 2003 SP2 / Exchange Server (no SP)
Domain: 4 Domain Controllers, 3 member servers (one of which is the Exchange server)
