  • Sonicwall wild card setup

    I have a Sonicwall NSA 240 and i have two address groups setup with a naming scheme as web_priv and another web_pub i am tring to create a wildcard like *.example.com and each time i do this the web_priv ip address is taken over by the wildcard and hence the site goes down.
    is there a way i can add this wild card and get it to work as it should without taking down my site???

      No i am trying to setup a wildcard for my domain in my sonicwall unit.
      example is my domain is called www.hlpme.com and if someone types in hlpme.com with my wildcard *.hlpme.com it will go directly to my site www.hlpme.com.

            Externally?
            Contact your ISP.

                why not just create entries for each site and point them all to the same address.

                  When creating the CSR request, you use the name *.example.com in it. IIS shouldn't need any tweaking providing it's IIS 6 or 7 and you won't be using the wildcard certificate for Exchange, whereas, additional config. is required and there are known limitations. You always have a grace period to have a certificate re-issued should it not work and request a re-issue of it. Also, you are sometimes entitled to additional certificates for other servers by sending another CSR request from another server and requestign a re-issue of the certificate.
