This is the third time you've asked this question (at least) :) I don't think the issue is setting up a CA for you as much as it is getting the certs installed and pushed to your clients. CA's are generally not available as public servers, so you have to have some mechanism to get those certs installed. Setting up a CA is easy:

Or purchase certs from a 3rd paty:

You then have to get the certs to the clients, or have them pre-installed.

Hi Rich..

Firstly I want to deploy own SSL certificates, there is something has to be done somewhere in CA server or VPN appliance which is being vital for implementation.

Not buying certificates...let's see some time...
