Installing a self signed SSL certificate IIS7 ISA 2006

I'm trying to run through a few step by step instructions I found and have hit a snag.
I created a self signed ssl cert from iis 7.0, I exported it to my ISA 2006 server, I installed it in trusted root CA. I go to the ISA 2006 webpublishing rule, select bridging and select redirect requests to ssl port 443 and browse for the cert but get the message there are no valid certificates. I still get prmpted with certificate error. I assume it is an issue with self signing a cert.

Please advise

Ok... Done a little more work. Downloaded the Selfssl.exe thingo with the IIS6.0 Resource Kit, created a cert with the correct machine name not FQDN. SSL work well on the site when accessing via https://servername/application_name. Now I am trying to bridge SSL 443 traffic to the webserver, however when I go to select the certificate there is still no valid certificate, I have installed the new cert in the trusted root CA but it is still not available.

Please advise

Ok... Still more work done. Found that using the certificate mmc snap in much easier. Used selfssl to create a cert based on xx.xxx.com. Got the certificate to recognise in the listener and applied it. I now can access the site via


but not http://domain_name/application

Any thoughts.....
