If I am going to use SSL with OWA do I need to purchase a CA from a 3rd party or can I have my server generate it's own?

Where are the tutorials on setting all of this up. MSExchange doesn't have anything good that encorporates both technologies.

Hi Ryan
i would go for the 3rd party, a little more expensive but then you dont have to manage a certificate server, i have some info on how to set it up, but it is 32 mb, so give me a private massage, and i will tell you where you can download it.

I have used the MS Certificate Server and installed a self-issued certificate which works excellent for us. Easy to manage, easy to install etc. The only issue I have had is that some browsers (i.e. Netscape) don't seem to like the encryption algorithm or what ever it's called - I'm no expert on SSL [Smile] which is, unless other specified, the default for MS generated certificates. Also users connecting from external sites will get a warning that the issuer of the SSL certificate is "not trusted", because it hasn't been signed by a trusted company like e.g VeriSign. But on a whole, if these drawbacks aren't an issue, save those bucks and go for a self-issued certificate.

Regards,

Johan

From my experience, it is pretty tough to find detailed or how-to's that are not based according to the book. I had to dig and hunt through the internet and mess up my test network several times just to get OWA working in a FE/BE environment. that's why I've come to the message boards, REAL PEOPLE WITH REAL PROBLEMS AND EXPERIENCES. I have yet to configure SSL for our Implementation, but we have SSL for our websites, so I'm pretty sure I can get one or our web admins to help me out on this one. Good luck!
