A production IIS 6.0 server serves secure pages using SSL. To get a develpment server as close to the production server as possible, the final touch was to add a SSL. Since the SSL is generated for the production server, it cannot be used on the development server. A new SSL is needed. To accomplish this, use SelfSSL 1.0.
The SelfSSL 1.0 is part of Microsoft’s Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Resource Kit Tools. It is a free download. The file is called iis60rkt.exe. Once downloaded, deselect everything but the option for SelfSSL 1.0.
After the installation is complete, go to Start > Programs > IIS Resources > SelfSSL > SelfSSL. From the SelfSSL command line interface, type the following command, changing myserver to your servername and domain.name to your domain: selfssl /T /N:CN=myserver.domain.name /K:1024 /V:360 /S:1 /P:443
This utility will generate and automatically register the generated cert.
