ConnectWise Control / ScreenConnect

Does anyone here have any experience getting Let’s Encrypt to work with ScreenConnect or ConnectWise Control? Same program, diff names. Their current implementation of SSL is kind of convoluted. They provide an SSL configurator but it’s on you to generate an SSL cert. I’d like to automate the process though like I have with the wacs.exe LetsEncryptSSL Gen. ScreenConnect requires a .pfx which I believe I can generate with WACS. Question is the bindings. I’ve not found a way to bind the certificate to the ScreenConnect instance besides using their configurator. I’m not great at scripting and was hoping someone else has figured out a way to do this. My thoughts were:

  1. run wacs.exe and configure the generation of the .pfx file.
  2. in the last step before verification there’s an option to “start external script or program”.
  3. the wacs.exe creates the scheduled tasks that runs the renewals and then runs the external script to bind the new cert to the SC instance.


My domain is:

I ran this command: haven’t yet

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): ScreenConnect / ConnectWise Control

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Windows Server 2016

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

You can also tell WACS to run the appropriate script with its hooks:
