Citrix Fundamentals - Installed new certificate -> SSL Error 59

RemcoVi used Ask the Experts™
I have a client wich a Windows 2008 R2 standard server. I have Citrix Fundamentals installed on it and the certificate wich they are using is expired.

So i went to Godaddy and bought a new multi domain certifcate.
The CSR is created on the SBS server 2011, so i could use one certificate.
Exported the certificate with the privatekey and imported it on the citrix server.

Ran the external connection wizard on the Citrix Fundamentals panel and selected this certificate and everything looks great.

Then when i connect externally i receive the following error:

Cannot connect to the Citrix XenApp server.
SSL Error 59: The server sent a security certificate identifying "", the SSL connection was to ""

What am i missing?

i hope someone can help me with this, because i am already struggling with this since this morning and the client can't connect at the moment.

If you are exporting and import the key to another server, you will need to purchase another cert to stay in compliance with your SSL licensing.

The issue however is the naming of the cert.  The common name of the cert must match the URL being requested by the client.  If it does not, it will not work as you have seen.  

If they are requesting, then the certificate must say or the connection fails.


I agree with Coralon, in addition I think you are confusing a catch-all domain cert with multi domain.  The only "multi" cert I am aware of would cover *, but not *.*.nl.


Sorry for my late response, but just a few minutes before your response i solved the issue and that was indeed the common name of the certificate.

The common name should be the same as the external link using to reach your citrix environment.
