Publishing a site that uses http and https

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.

Can you explain how to relay the cert to my server if i install it on TMG? Apparantly we're having issues with Webdav running like crap now.

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.
