    Important poll for UK schools

    We are undertaking a bit of important research and need to find out just how many schools out there require SSl certificates and how many you need. This should include any self signed certificates you currently have to ensure correct operations of your Exchange, VPN, online reporting etc.
    This is for UK schools only, but if you are from another country and would like us to run a poll for you please don't hesitate to us

    I've voted 2, but currently only use 1. We will soon have 2 sites - 1 which is our public site, with a school shop, and another which is our webservice site - used by externally managed sites (saves us opening ports to database servers).

    i voted 4 +, bit only need one wildcard cert per school. i do however (with my colleagues) support 55 schools. the trouble has not been finding a supplier but getting the local council to respond the the licence provider. the council hold the top level domain name and the provider wants them to respond to the verification request.

    if any one knows how to get the cert provider to repond to the school direct I would be very greatful!
