Install a Certificate

To activate the SSL version 3.0 security features of your Web server, you must obtain and install a valid server certificate. A server certificate enables users to authenticate your server, check the validity of Web content, and establish a secure connection. To request a new certificate, you need to complete Internet Information Services (IIS) Web Server Certificate Wizard. Once the request has been sent to the certificate authority and processed, you must run IIS Web Server Certificate Wizard again to install the certificate.

To install a certificate:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to NNTP.


    1. Server

  3. In the console tree, right-click a virtual server, and then click Properties.
  4. On the Access tab, click Certificate.
  5. To request a new certificate, complete IIS Web Server Certificate Wizard.
  6. To save your settings, click Apply.
  7. To install the certificate, click Certificate again.
