SelfSSL for IIS

Install the 'IIS6 Resource Kit' from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=56fc92ee-a71a-4c73-b628-ade629c89499&DisplayLang=en

Note: Although this is the ISS6 Resource Kit it also works for IIS 5. Just copy the selfssl.exe to your Windows 2000 server.

Log into the server that requires the certificate renewal with local administrator rights:

1. Go to ‘Start’ – ‘Programs’ – ‘IIS Resources’ – ‘SelfSSL’ choose ‘SelfSSL’
2. Type in ‘selfssl.exe /N:CN=/K:1024 /V:1095 /S:1 /P:443 /T’ with the correct server name for example: ‘selfssl.exe /N:CN=SERVERABC123 /K:1024 /V:1095 /S:1 /P:443 /T’
3. Select ‘Enter’
4. When you receive the message ‘Do you want to replace the SSL settings for site 1 (Y/N)?’ pres ‘Y’
5. You should receive the message ‘The self signed certificate was successfully assigned to site 1.’

For IIS7 see ScottGu's tutorial here: Enabling SSL on IIS 7.0 Using Self-Signed Certificates
