We have a site sitting behind TMG thats http and we're adding https becuase of a store.

We purchased Netsol's NSprotect secure (extended valiation) cert from network solutions and I have the cert installed on the website. I'm not sure what cert to install on the TMG box so I can enable https on the web listener to allow https://www.ourwebsite.com.

Thanks

It actually depends on who will handle the SSL encryption overload.

You have two options:

1) Install the cert on your web server and foward HTTPS traffic from TMG.

2) Install the cert on your TMG and relay it to your web server.

I figured out the fowarding HTTPS traffic to the IIS server and got it to work.

I just didn't know if this was the correct way. When you go to enable https on the web listener it won't let you unless you have a cert installed.

So.. thats why i'm a bit confused.

Thanks

If you dont want to install the certificate on the TMG, then try to purplish the server as non-web server ( non-web server publish rule) using the https protocol.

well you could try installing the certificate to the tmg and publish the website through the ssl listener as a website.

the connection would be ssl secure from the outside client to the tmg. but not from tmg to the webserver.
