A customer bought an SSL certificate to go with their domain. I don't install them myself but was asked to watch and comment.
The site said it required a CSR of 2048 bytes. We used IIS 6 to create the CSR but it created a file around 1360 bytes and it was refused. Later, when I wasn't connected and watching the process, the user announced that it now worked. When I checked the size of the CSR it was 1730 bytes.
worked when he tried on his work computer on the same network as the web server but this url does not work from outside his business.
Is the problem a propagation lag, port 443 not open to the internet or just a too small CSR.
