Use certificate for other purposes, e.g. VPN



Is it possible to use the certificate for other purposes than IIS-https? I am thinking of an OpenVPN server.
Should I do any modifications in a pre/post request scripts?

Thanks, Chris



Hi, yes the certificate just demonstrates your control of the domains included in the certificate and once you have a certificate you can deploy it in any manner you like. You can use post-request scripting to convert the certificate you get into other formats and distribute it however you need (onto other servers etc). Common uses include MS Exchange, Apache, Remote Desktop Gateway. For custom uses you just need to know how to script the deployment of the certificate you get. See also

A future version will have UI options for extended deployment steps (things like converting/copying file over sftp etc).



Thanks for your prompt reply!
