    SSL Certification for a Server with local IP (no DNS entry)


      I have a Mac FM 15 server that I want to keep secure as possible. It's on our internal network. It has records with credit card info.


      How do I get a certificate for this type of server if there is no domain or DNS entry attached to it?

      (Sorry, first time thought this)


      I think it should go like this?

           I make my request.

           Find an FileMaker authorized certifier. (A List of recommendations?)

           Exchange data and a fee.  (What do I enter for the domain? The ip address used by clients to access the server?)

           I should get a set of .pem files back.

           I secure the one, and use FileMaker Admin to install the other on the server?


           To verify, I need to open FileMaker Pro fresh and check the remote connection for a closed lock?


           Every 24 months or so, I will need to re-certify and get new .pem files?
