Hello,
SBS 2008
Does Remote Web Workplace (RWW) need an SSL Certificate on SBS 2008?
When I attempt to use RWW to remote to the SBS 2008 Server, I am getting an error message that I NEED an SSL Certificate to connect.
Why can't I just bypass this, as I can with older Microsoft O/S's.

Here is the message:
VBScript: Remote Desktop Disconnected.
To connect to Remote Web Workplace, you must install the proper certificate.  Contact the person who
provides technical support for your network.

Have you configured the RWW service to require NTLM or integrated certicate services for authentication, try setting the service to use basic authentication sent in clear text.

If the remote web worker service has a federated services share associated to it though, you will have to assign a cert unfortunatly.
Although you should be able to issue a new self signed certificate no problem, install ADCS under roles on the server and then log onto http:\\localhost\certsvr and request a cert to install and use for RWW
