Hi,
We have just installed a Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 at a clients site.
All was fine, until we swapped the remote access to htps://
We are using a godaddy ssl - which works perfectly from outside the LAN.
But now every user internally gets a certificate error when they access OWA, Sharepoint etc.
The certificate on the server does now point to companyname.secure.net and I am guessing internally it doesn't see this path??
I have no experience in this server, could an expert please help!!

Many thanks,

Mike

Hello ics45,

that is because internally you should use split dns.
SBS is configured with split dns, do you could use the DEFAULT url.
Since you are using a different url, you can create a split dns on your SBS server for that new url.
here is a tutorial for that:

btw, did you install the cert like this?:

ics45,

btw,
Start > SBS Native Tools Management [Enter] > DNS > Forward Lookup Zones.
there you can see the default split dns vanues.

Hi Suppsaws,

many thanks for the very fast reply.
I did install the cert as your second link (Actually using the very same link!!).
I will check the first (split DNS) straight away and reply ASAP.
Once again many thanks for the reply,

Kindest regards,

Mike

Hi Suppsaws,

Just to clarify the link..

I want to add a local resource that is available on the internet??

So When I go to DNS manager I have 3 zones on the server;
_msdcs.domain.local
domain.local
remote.domain.co.uk

Should I be adding www.internal IP address to my domain.local zone??

Many thanks,

Mike

Hi,

Now I have looked further do I actually need to create the companyname.secure.net listing in my domain.local zone??

Hi,

this is now working, split DNS was the answer, but not really as described in the link.

I am happy to split the points,

Many thanks,

Mike
