Set Up HTTPS / SSL Certificate For Our Website On Another Server

Mar 30, 2011

There are 2 web-servers involved:

Webserver1 has been in the organization a few years and is hosting/running multiple websites with https encryption (,, etc). It has a valid, signed certificate.

Webserver2 is a new server, for which I am responsible. I am tasked with setting up https and getting the certificate, etc. It has a web app running on it, but it does not have a domain name (only has an IP address)...which as I recently learned, is a requirement for a signed certificate.

What I'd like to know is this -- is it possible to set up a site on Webserver1 that points to the site I'm hosting on Webserver2 (ie which also utilizes the Webserver1's signed/verified certificate?

C# - Error In HTTPS For Self Signed Certificate

Oct 11, 2010

This is in VS 2005. And IIS is 6.0. I am trying to use Self signed certificate for HTTPS. In the code i am redirecting from http to https for few pages. It is nt working fine. and in the IIS manager, for each page that i want HTTPs, i have changed its setting by checking "Require Secure Channel(SSL)" and "Require 128 bit encryption".

public void setSecureProtocol()
string redirectUrl = null;
bool bSecure = true;
bool SecureConnection = true;
if (bSecure && SecureConnection)
redirectUrl = Request.Url.ToString().Replace("http:", "https:");
if (!bSecure && SecureConnection)
redirectUrl = Request.Url.ToString().Replace("https:", "http:");
if (redirectUrl != null)

Pages throw me an error like this The page must be viewed over a secure channel The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets

Layer (SSL).

Please try the following:

* Type https:// at the beginning of the address you are attempting to reach and press ENTER.

HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden: SSL is required to view this resource. Internet Information Services (IIS)Internet Information Services (IIS) When i try to put https in the start of the URl, it wont call. I have no idea whats wrong in here. Here, Its not redirecting from http to https. For the pages that i am not redirecting in the code behind, and changing in the IIS, i can see the HTTPS when i check the two checkboxes.

C# - Can't Connect To HTTPS Using X509 Client Certificate

May 24, 2010

I'm new to cryptography and I'm a bit stuck:

I'm trying to connect (from my development environment) to a web service using HTTPS. The web service requires a client certificate - which I think I've installed correctly.

They have supplied me with a .PFX file. In Windows 7, I double clicked the file to install it into my Current User - Personal certificate store.

I then exported a X509 Base-64 encoded .cer file from the certificate entry in the store. It didn't have a private key associate with it.

Then, in my app, I'm attempting to connect to the service like this:

var certificate = X509Certificate.CreateFromCertFile("xyz.cer"));
var serviceUrl = "https://xyz";
var request = (HttpWebRequest) WebRequest.Create(serviceUrl);
request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Post;
request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";

I get a 502 Connection failed when I connect.

Is there anything you can see wrong with this method? Our production environment seems to work with a similar configuration, but it's running Windows Server 2003.

SSL Certificate Type Required For PayPal HTTPS Web Service (Payments Pro SOAP / NVP)

Feb 25, 2011

We set up a paypal gateway on our site using paypal NVP API: Our IIS web server is set up for SSL, though I just created a cert on the locally machine. When we load HTTPS the browser gives a warning about security before the page will load. I know a local cert won't cut it for SSL, so I think we need a verisign cert? [URL] Is this correct? How can I know that the cert I am getting will get along with paypal and elimante any security warnings for the user.

Post Client Certificate From IE And Validate Certificate On IIS / Web Server

Nov 30, 2012

Let's assume our users in their office using Internet explorer to sign some Web Pages using their client certificate imported into the Internet explorer browser (let s assume no other browser is used)

what is a good approach/architecture for validating the client certificate (Internet Explorer), how to send that certificate or the signed form to the server and how do we verify the signature

Should we use smart client approach integrated to the web application or some silverlight or so or is web form/web pages enough to implement this security requirement ?

Security :: How To Get X.509 Certification From Https Website

Aug 13, 2010

What I want to do is like the web browser. When you visit a https web site, the browser will download and install the X.509 Certification automatically.

I have a application which will be installed in PC, and the application will post to a https website. So if the certification is expired, the App should download a new one.

So, how can I get the certification? A stream is always good, I can make it to certification.

How To Make A Website Secured With HTTPS

Feb 5, 2010

i have to build a small webapp for a company to maintain their business data... Only those within the company will be using it, but we are planning to host it in public domain, so that the employees can connect to app from various locations. (Till now I have built web apps that are hosted internally only)

I'm wondering whether I need to use a secured connection (https) or just the forms authentication is enough.

What should I do to prepare my website for https. (Do I need to alter the code / Config) Is SSL and https one and the same... Do I need to apply with someone to get some license or something. Do I need to make all my pages secured or only the login page...

Web Forms :: How To Do HTTPS Redirect In Website

May 7, 2015

I purchased a certificate from my hosting provider from my web site. There was some confusion as to whether I needed to use IIS to install it or if they would. After a few days and several phone calls they said they had it installed and configured, but when I tried to set up rewrite rules in web.config the site would not load. When I point my browser to https:mydomain it would load, but there was not green lock in the address bar and 'HTTPS' was not green. I contacted them again and after explaining the situation and being put on hold for 45 minutes I hung up. This morning the the site is working and HTTPS appears to be configured correctly.

I could find no changes to web.config on redirection, so how is it being redirected to HTTPS? I'm concerned that when I post changes to the site I could wipe out what ever they did to get it to work with HTTPS. Could changes been made 'above' my site on the server that I can't affect? Should I be concerned?

Iis - Can Detect If SSL/HTTPS Is Enabled For A Website From Within The Site's Code

Nov 16, 2010

I'm working on a CMS that can run either with or without https enabled on the webserver. I'd like to be able to detect whether https is enabled or not, so that I can act accordingly (for example, display some https-related options to the administrator, and redirect to https for administrator logins).

I'm not looking for Request.IsSecureConnection because that only tells me if the current request is via https. I want something that will tell me whether the current bindings for the site in IIS include a binding for https at the same domain as the current request is on. So, for example, even if the current request is for [URL] and thus not secure, I want to know whether [URL] would work so I can (for example) redirect the user to it if they log in as administrator.

I've had no luck looking for anything in System.Web.Configuration that will tell me about the bindings of the current site, though.

C# - Query Data From A Password Protected Https Website?

Apr 14, 2010

I'd like my application to query a csv file from a secure website. Currently I have the user login to the site, manually query the csv, and have my application load the file locally. I'd like to automate this by having the user enter his login information, authenticating him on the website, and querying the data. The application is written in C# .NET. The url of the site is:

I've tested the following code already and am able to access the file once the user has already authenticated himself and created a manual query.

System.Net.WebClient Client = new WebClient();
Stream strm = Client.OpenRead("<username>/file.csv");

Here is the request sent to the site for authentication. I've angle bracketed the real userid and password.

POST /pwdVal.asp HTTP/1.1

Security :: Client Certificate Does Not Arrive On The Web Server

Mar 1, 2010

I would like to identify users that connect on a intranet web server (IIS) with client certificates.

I've set up a CA server on a Windows 2003 server pc. On my development pc, i've a windows xp with a web server (IIS) running.From my web server, i generated a certificate request (i specified the netbios name of my web server because this setup is for an intranet), i used that request to generate a web server certificate and i installed it on my IIS to allow SSL connection. . Now, i can connect with https to my web server from an internet explorer. I configured the web server to 'require client certificates'.

I would like to authenticate the users with a client certificate installed on each users pc. My CA server allows users to request a client certificate (domain user) from the CA server just by typing the url of the CA server and click 'User Certificate', 'submit' and then 'Install this certificate'.

In order to test my setup, i opened a Internet Explorer from a pc which resides in the domain and i requested and installed the user certificate. Then i connected to my web server and i get a window with the title "Choose a digital certificate". This window is always empty and never proposes the client certificate i previously installed on the user pc.

I've no idea of what i missed during my setup. I'm still wondering how the browser knows how to select which certificate must be displayed according to the url typed in the address bar.

Security :: Communicate To Secure Enable Server With Certificate?

Oct 28, 2010

Currently I am facing a problem to communicate with a server that enable ssl...

normally we are using TCPClient to send and receive data from server, but now the server that I trying to connect to, need SSL and certificate..

I was trying to search at google and most of the solutions i got it is use SSLStream and X509Certificates. and I have another question, Am I need to create Client and Listener in order to communicate with that server? Because I had reviewed all the sample and they didn't attach the private key when send request to server.
