Installing and Binding an SSL Certificate in IIS 7


Once you have sent your Certificate Signing Request (CSR) to a certificate authority and received your security certificate, you are now ready to install and bind that certificate to your Jet Hub

Installing the Certificate

  1. From the Start screen, click or search for Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and open it.

  2. Under Connections, click on your server name.
  3. In the center panel, double-click the Server Certificates button in the IIS section.
  4. From the "Actions" menu (on the right), click on Complete Certificate Request... This will open the Complete Certificate Request wizard.
  5. Browse to certificate file that was provided to you by your Certificate Authority. You will then be required to enter a friendly name. The friendly name is not part of the certificate itself, but is used by the server administrator to easily distinguish the certificate. Choose to place the new certificate in the Personal certificate store.

Click OK to install the certificate to the server.

Binding the Certificate to the Jet Hub

Once the SSL Certificate has been successfully installed to the server, you will need to assign that certificate to the appropriate website using IIS.

  1. From the Connections menu in the main Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager window, select the name of the server to which the certificate was installed.
  2. Under Sites, select the Jet site to be secured with SSL.
  3. From the Actions menu (on the right), click on Bindings...  This will open the Site Bindings window.
  4. In the Site Bindings window, select the Port (usually 443) that was specified during the installation of the Jet Hub and then click Edit... This will open the Edit Site Binding window.
  5. The IP address should be the IP address of the site or All Unassigned, and the port over which traffic will be secured by SSL is usually 443.  From the SSL Certificate drop-down list, select the certificate name that you just installed.

Once you click OK, your security certificate is now installed, and the Jet Hub configured to accept secure connections.
