    Currently we have two self-signed/created ones, one for each wireless network, but I don't really know enough about it.

    I would think I need one each for: mail, SLG, new (planned) open access wireless, remote/VPN.

    But if it is possible to have them as *.domainname.sch.uk instead, then maybe I would only need 1.

    Echo User3204 in that I don't know enough about it. But I have Exchange, a VPN and planned for SLG. If a schoolname.lea.sch.uk was available guess I'd use that (if only I knew what for and how)

    I think its worth mentioning that there some servcies such as exchange 2007 requires the use SAN (Subject Alternative Names) certs to pulish servcies such as Outlook anywhere and Exchange Active sync. Wild card certs don't work Exchange activesync (EAS) because some mobile devices don't support them.

    So please whoever is researching this make sure that SAN certs are inlcuded as i'm sure these will more handy for many services certainly in exchange publishing scenarios.

    We only have one, but we are planning to launch more web services over the next year, so will probably need 2 or maybe more. Ours are self signed at the moment, and the staff get damned confused when they get the warning screen. One of the things to sort out for the summer is getting a signed certificate!

    Smile I need 3 for Exchange, our SSL-VPN Sonic Wall Box and Sharepoint

    I urgently need one for our Sharepoint server (we invested in an in-house hosted SIMS learning Gateway running full Sharepoint.)

    If anyone knows the cheapest place to buy these I would be interested.

    These guys:

    SSL Certificates SSL Wildcard SSL Free Certificates SSL Server Certificate 256 bits

    Do Single host 2 year certs free for education. If you want to check browser compatibility, point your browser at our webmail system, which is using one of their certs

    We just bought a single host one from trustico.co.uk (a RapidSSL cert). 3 year one was 35.80.

    Which server? IIS? Apache? RapidSSL provide instructions on how to generate CSRs, and there is also this: Securing Apache 2 using SSL

    For apache2 - not sure how to do it in IIS.

    Sorry - not enough detail! On IIs 6.0 on Server 2008 Enterprise Edition with Hyper V. My Sharepoint Server is running on a virtual machine. I have discovered that the ipsca.com website has instructions which gave me an idea of what to do but bore no relation to IIs 6.00. Most people do not seem to be familiar with this yet. There is actually a handy icon for managing web certificates in IIS which made it easy to find. I have submitted my request now, but thanks for offering to help.

    You mean IIS 7, IIS 6 is 2003\XP.

    Try:
    Installing an SSL Certificate in Windows Server 2008 (IIS 7.0)
