  • SSL cert question and host name

    If I have my machines in my internal domain setup as exchange.domain.local but the external resolves to What do I need to do in IIS or whatever when I buy a certificate? I assume I will buy a certificate with I'm just concerned I am going to see a name mismatch when clients try to connect. Don't want to waste time and money on buying a certificate if I do it totally wrong!

    Thanks for any input!

    The name only has to match your A record in public DNS. Just install the certificate in IIS, and as long as you using an Certificate Authority recognised by your browser you should have no issues at all.
