I have just installed terminal services & terminal services gateway on a standard 2008 server. Everything appears to be working great. However, everytime a user tried to access the TS gateway via internet explorer, they get the following warning:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

Can someone tell me how to create a cert and import it. I want to use a self assigned cert for now. I will need some step by steps including up to importing it into the terminal server.

Thanks ~~~

I'll have to scrounge up the steps for creating the SLL cert, but using a self signed certificate will always lead to the first error message.  Unless you get Verisign, GoDaddy, or some other "trusted certificate authority" to generate the certificate for you, that error will appear.  The website address error has to do with the url used when the original certificate was created.  Say you registered localhost and are accessing, or you generated it for www.url.com and you are access a subdomain of dev.url.com.  

Different certificate authorities charge very different amounts, last I checked, GoDaddy was very affordable and VeriSign was very proud of their name.  There are many others as well.
