We have an SBS 2003 box with Exchange working fine, and an OKTA Boss that can Activesync over the air no problem with SSL turned off.

We require SSL to be operational.

All the info I have seen seems to relate to older Windows Mobile OSes. Can anybody please point me in the right direction on where in the OKTA Boss I should put the cert, and exactly how to make it be accepted?

The Boss is the WM6 Windows Mobile Standard (aka 'Smartphone' not 'Pocket PC'), and is a re-badged HTC Libra (CDMA version of the HTC Vox)

Windows Mobile Standard uses a two-tier security. You will need to modify the security policies to install self-signed certifcate.

I think this is stupid because other devices don't need this and can have any applications installed - but there will be a day Windows Mobile Professional will be the same.

In the meantime, contact me in private and I can send instructions.

I used to use "SPCert.exe" on Smartphone 2003 to instal self-signed SSL cert but haven't used that Smartphone for a long while, and since then I've not used SSL connection for OTA Exchange ActiveSync - more for the reason of convenient. Is "SPCert.exe" technique still work on WM5 Smartphones/WM6 Standard?

Oh while here... anyone know how to put Self Signed SSL Cert onto Nokia N95 (and even WM5 PocketPC too?)

Internet is my backyard...

I think the nokias (from experince with N6* series - cant remember which one sorry) will not allow self signed - altough some older versions of the Exchange component will.

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.
