I have a Web Server which is placed behind the Cisco ASA Firewall.
The ASA Firewall is configured for SSL VPN access for the URL https://www.abc.com/
The SSL certificate is configured in the Cisco ASA firewall. The firewall 1st authenticate using SSL VPN & allows the Web Page of the Web server to be accessed.

Now I don't want to have the SSL VPN on the firewall. I want to access the Web server directly behind the firewall. So I am planning to install the SSL certificate on the Web Server.

I want to remove the certificate configured in the ASA & install the same certificate on the Web Server.

Let me know if this will work. Can i use the same certificate & install it in the Web Server.

You have to configure the firewall to SSL passthrough instead of SSL termination. You may need to reconfigure ASA.

If you can export the certificate along with the root and intermediate certificates, then you should not have any issue using the same certificate in web server. Just open the port in firewall to the webserver and configure the certificate. You should be good.

I would suggest you create a new config in ASA. Test that and then turn off the old config.
