I get an error message about a self-signed certificate when I browse to Remote Web Workplace from a computer that is running Windows Vista and that is not joined to the Windows Small Business Server domain

Cause: The client computer that is running Windows Vista is not joined to the Windows SBS network, so the certificate is not installed.

Solution: Install the self-signed certificate on the computer that is running Windows Vista.

To install the self-signed certificate (sbscert.cer) on a computer that is running Windows Vista and that is not joined to the network
  1. From a computer that is joined to the Windows SBS domain, click Start, click Run, and then type \\ServerName\ClientApps\SBScert\.

  2. Copy and paste sbscert to a floppy disk or a USB key.

  3. Log on to your computer that is not joined to the Windows SBS domain as an administrator.

  4. Insert the floppy disk or USB key into the computer that is running Windows Vista and that is not joined to the domain, and from which you would like to access Remote Web Workplace.

  5. Launch Internet Explorer.

  6. From the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  7. On the Content tab, in the Certificates section, click the Certificate button.

  8. In the Certificate page, click Import.

  9. In the File to import page of the Certificate Import Wizard, browse to the location of the saved sbscert.cer, and then follow the instructions to complete the wizard. When asked where to place the certificate, you must place it in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities certificate store.

    ImportantImportant
    If you do not specify the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store when you import the certificate, the user will still get a warning when the user browses to Remote Web Workplace.
    noteNote
    Sending the certificate via e-mail is not recommended, because this file type is blocked in Outlook.
