    Hi There,

    This is all new to me and I spent the last half of the day trying to work out how to generate the SSL Keys with the tool included. I’m not sure of done it right but I’m starting to think that chrome will still display the “your connection to this site is not secure” message to any user that used the IP or URL I provide them unless I purchase a SSL certificate from a web hosting provider.

    Is this correct? And do you support these purchased SSL?

    Hi Stich,

    Please, see the article : “How to solve ‘The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority'”

    Hi Shoti,

    Thanks for your response. I’ve spent a lot of time reading and learning and I eventually worked out how to do it. Easy when you know how but days of working it out when you don’t.  I bought an SSL certificate from (withheld) for my domain name. I saved my private key and the Root Certificate file (the one with all the random characters) over the ht_host_ras_key and ht_host_ras_key.crt files in the no machine installation. (withheld gives 3 files so it took me a while to what out what needed to go where).

    I didn’t need to use OPENSSL tool to create key pairs as the article suggested as withheld provides everything you need to create a certificate. Then you just save your private key and then download the root key later in the next step.

    Anyhow it worked. I can now use my subdomain to access to machines through a web browser without it popping up with any security warning. 🙂

    Now I just need to work out if I need to port forward to every machine in my router individually or cannot somehow get the gateway/upnp thing to work so I don’t need too. Not sure. It’s only about 20 machines at this point so I might just do them all manually.

    Thanks again and I hope my info helps someone.
