Certificate errors on server
Bit of background on this - i wanted to have access to spiceworks helpdesk at home for staff. Enabled all the https settings and then got my LEA to add a new IP and a dns redirect on helpdesk.schoolname.co.uk (subdomain in our schoolname.sch.uk) to the spiceworks server.
On the server i setup the default website on IIS for SSL connection to spiceworks and all works fine. Problem is i get the certificate error from outside the network and would rather everyone didnt have to click on continue every time.
So i got my free CA certificate from SSL Certificates SSL Wildcard SSL Free Certificates SSL Server Certificate 256 bits for helpdesk.schoolname.sch.uk installed it on the server without issue. I then followed the SW guide to allocating the certificate to SW's (Assign Your Existing Public SSL Certificate To Spiceworks - Spiceworks Community) but still getting same certificate error.
If i check the certificate details it gives me following:
ipsCA Level 1 CA
Valid from 05/04/2011 - 12/04/2013
Im worried i should have put it as https://helpdesk.schoolname.sch.uk ?
I have also noticed since i imported the certificate onto the server the default website is now stopped? Not sure if related or whether that happens when certificate is installed on server.
