IP adress and SSL problem with SSL settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-303742001 posted

    I broke some problem to configure SSL with only IP address like in the post http://forums.iis.net/t/1226394.aspx?SSL+self+signed+IIS+7+5+and+local+address+IP but I still have a problem.

    If In IIS 7.5 I set up Client Certificate on Accept in "SSL Settings"  - and it working fine, no certificate's error and comunication is encrypted

    but when I switch Client Certificate to : Require in SSL Settings  then client IE don't get connection with SSL portal on IIS, only 403 error - access denided appeared from serwer IIS.

    Someone could clear me about this problem ? ,  It is keep on use only IP address in  creatting CN certificate, without DNS address.

    Hi skops,

    Client certificates provide user authentication functionality. In IIS, you have the option of ignoring, accepting, or requiring client certificates when a user accesses resources on your server. Ignoring certificates simply means that you are not using them, will not ask the client for one, and will discard one if it is sent to your server. If you choose to accept certificates, your server will prompt for a certificate but will not necessarily deny access if a certificate is not provided. If you require client certificates, the user must supply a valid certificate. This error will be received if a client doesn't provide a client certificate when one is required.

    403.7 - Client certificate required

    To configure client certificates, please refer to this


    Best Regards,

    Fei Han
