Previously in SBS 2003 I was able to connect Remote Web Workplace entering https://70.xx.xx.xx/remote and now I cannot connect properly using https://remote.xxxxxx.com/remote for SBS 2008. I am missing something in configuration/certificates/dns and not sure what. Our website/e-mail pop3 is hosted by an ISP that is not one of SBS 2008 approved (and we will not be changing) so I opted to manage the domain name myself in SBS 2008 and create a self signed certificate. I used the certificate package created on the server to install on my remote machine. If I type in https://70.xx.xx.xx/remote I do get the RWW however the certificates do not match the self-signed certificate that i created on the server even after installing the one from the server. I make sure it was trusted. It does however let me log into my outlook and company web page even though it indicates certificate error. I get invalid certificate error and mismatch when trying to connect to my client computers/server. If i type in https://remote.xxxxxx.com/remote in the browser... it cannot find it. I tried to enter DNS records in server but not sure i was putting them in right spot. I put them under remote.micromould.com trying to get it to point to the WAN address. I tried to generate a new self-signed certificate and added it on my remote PC but that still gave me same error. I used the default when setting up my address because I wasn't sure if there was a way to enter the IP address instead. Its like it is 'half' right. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am scratching my head. I know it has to do with the self signed certificate and DNS pointers just not sure how to fix it.
