Remote Desktop SSL Certificate - Server 2008 R2

Hello, I am providing Remote Desktop access to users via a 2008 R2 server for external use. I am not using web access, Access is restricted via the Remote Desktop application on external clients . The users can connect and use the service as intended. At present I am using a self signed certificate, How do I go about installing a signed certificate from a provider? I have not installed IIS, I can launch the Certificates snap in and attempt to request a new certificate in the Personal section but I stall at that point.

I could install IIS and do it that way but not sure if it will work with Remote desktop not being web accessible.

Any ideas on how I should proceed?

Regards, Aelara

We purchased one last year for the same purpose from GoDaddy and it worked out very well.
