I’m curious about whether this is possible to achieve or not.
I have a local apache webserver part of a xampp package on a windows 64 bit machine. The machine is part of a network behind a firewalled router with DDNS configured with afraid.org on a subdomain of their domains.
Now I know it’s not really recommended to have a local server “open to the world” but it’s really only available when I’ll be showing clients work being done but I do like the idea of having SSL…
I checked some of the implementations available (List of Client Implementations) and I had given ACMESharp a try which unfortunately didn’t work, cert remains invalid… Despite having gone through the instructions, I could not validate the cert…
I know I could go through the makecert.bat within XAMPP but I’m reluctant to self sign (uncertain of security/efficiency/etc)
I’d like to know if someone attempted this already. if so, how they went about it? which implementation to recommend to someone who’s not fluent with this stuff but not totally illiterate.
