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?
No SSL issuers will issue an SSL cert for an IP address. They used to don't anymore. If this is for an internal network you will need to set up a DNS because users will need to connect using the fully qualified DNS name of the server (server.domain.com).
