Hi team,

Does anyone know of a good guide/tutorial for how to create a wildcard certificate? Before I buy one I want to be sure FTMG will perform the SSL routing (by URL) I desire so need to generate one for testing.

So I've created the Certificate Services server with a webpage for submission. Then used Opensso (Open SUSE) to create the CSR, but the Certificate Created is not accepted by FTMG.

Note: Microsoft AD propogates the Certificate Services Server as Trusted Root on all other machines on the domain.

Not answering the question buuut - why not get more IPs - sooo much more simple.

Hmmm, I suspect my problem is that I did not create the CSR on the target host?

To put in context, this at my home, not a commercial solution, just a self training exercise.

So, got this working. The important part was to use

certreq.exe -new

(and not a third party) with the following reqest.inf file (I went to this and then away again as it did not present a UI)

[NewRequest]
Subject = "CN=*."
MachineKeySet = True
KeyLength = 2048
KeySpec=1
[RequestAttributes]
CertificateTemplate = WebServer

the scenario you posted will work for several servers from the same SSL listener. you may run into problems if you need different authentication methods defined on the listeners. e.g. one for forms based AD integration for exchange web access, a different one for basic auth passthrough (e.g. web server with user/pass) and a different one again for RPC over HTTPS

Yes, indeed I have. Cannot get RDGateway to work in this configuration. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get everything I want to work through a single IP address. So far I have SharePoint, OWA and a basic Web Site configured. Critically I need the HTTPS proxy for Exchange and ActiveSync to work, which I have my doubts will be successful.

you can always serve up HTTPS/RPC over a custom port.  ActiveSync too, but its more a pain configuring phones to use custom ports

I can't even see how to tell my phone to use a non standard port to connect to activesync over ssl. If you can tell me, I will have a statue erected in your honour!

I have android 2.3

if its supported, i would expect that you would just enter server name as myexchange.co.nz:444.  This plus the ssl required flag should result in calls to https://myexchange.co.nz:444/ .  Assuming its supported....

I'm abandoning TS Gateway and just going to try and get Exchange and SharePoint to work, if even that is achievable, the listener configuration for the two may conficting requirements, oh well, so much for cutting over this weekend.
