SSL certificate

Hi,

I have a client with some SSL certificate issues.

I will list some items relevant to this question:

Windows 2003 server with Remote Web Workplace (RWW) & exchange
MX record from webhost pointing to the windows 2003 server for mail traffic
Website hosted on remote server
domain name points to webhost offsite

So every time my client needs to access Remote Web Workplace they type in www.domain.com/remote  which is then redirected (using a php script located on the offsite webserver) to the WAN IP address of the (no domain name only IP) windows 2003 server so they end up having 123.123.123.123/remote in their address bar (obviously they can type in 123.123.123.123/remote and still access RWW). Now the problem is that every time that they access RWW they receive an SSL error im thinking this is due to the certificate being used is for domain.com not 123.123.123.123.

Is it possible to have a DNS record that will show that domain.com is one IP and domain.com/remote is another IP? This way the certificate will do its job.

Cheers.

No not possible for a DNS that goes to domain.com/remote

you can get an SSL for an IP ( not suggested )

another way would be to use a different hostname for host.domain.com/remote - and get a ssl cert to match host.domain.com  ( suggested )

GoDaddy is a cheaper and yet very good ssl, you can get standard for like $40. a year, and look  for coupon codes.

Hope that helps.

I thought that this would be the best avenue, but I was unsure if I could use the IP address on an ssl cert.

Cheers!!
