Hi All

I am in the process of setting up SBS 2011 For Remote Access and email etc, can anybody tell me what names I would need for things like outlook anywhere to work.

I know I will need autodiscover, remote, and webmail etc but dod I need the local machine name in there aswell, and does anyone know any good articles for installing a Multiple named cert on sbs

Thanks

you dont need any of them. Just the single name you called the server in the wizard 'internet computer name'. It normally asks you to call it remote.yourdomain.com

Just get a cert for this only and everything will work fine. Use the certificate wizard to generate the request.

We use cheapssl.com for ours under $10 for a trusted SSL cert.
