Just re-read your post and saw that you have trust chain, that means you have your CSR signed by the third party.

Please visit the link below for step-by-step instructions for installing your certificate in Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.

After ypu have imported the certificate, you will need also to import the chain trust into the folder call Intermidiate certificate Authority.

I hope this helps

The second part (search for "IIS Manager" topic) of this guide should help you: http://www.iis.net/learn/manage/configuring-security/how-to-set-up-ssl-on-iis

However you will need to import the certificate instead of generating a new one.

The chain you need to install on the server, as described in http://www.entrust.net/knowledge-base/technote.cfm?tn=8166

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi;

The problem with installing the certificate is after the installation, I try to bind it but i cannot see my certificate installed.

I have 3 files, 2 of which has .cer extension ( base64 and der) and 1 file p7b.

I tried all of them actually but I cannot see my cert at step 14.

Please close the IIS Manager and open it again.

And continue with the binding step.
