I am using a SharePoint Foundation 2010 test server to test the process of implementing SSL on Foundation. I have performed the following steps according to these two articles. I diverged a little by using a self-signed cert and using Internal URL rather than a Public URL.
So, not sure why, but anyone can view the SharePoint site now, which before I implemented SSL only those who had permissions in the Permissions Level list could. They would be required to authenticate to even view the site.
Not sure what changed, but before I proceed further with the actual third-party SSL cert install on my production SharePoint Foundation server, I need to figure this out so it doesn't occur on it.
Server: Server 2008 R2, SQL 2005 x64 SP4, SharePoint Foundation 2010
Any ideas or suggestions to check/verify?
Thanks in advance.
