So, I’m very new to creating and issuing SSL certificates. In the past I’ve simply purchased SSL certificates from our domain hosting service, but I’d like to move away from that for cost savings and, hopefully, to educate myself on the certification process.
Our company uses a Mac Pro, primarily as a file server, which I’d like to update the server certificate on. Is that something I could do with Let’s Encrypt? If so, how? I attempted following this guide, but I noticed it’s designed to generate a certificate for a website hosted on an OS X server, not the server certificate and I ran into a problem where I was unable to run the get_cert.sh command once it was created.
This is the first certificate I’d like to create and issue. There’s several other connections I’d like to create certificates for as well, such as WatchGuard Security Appliances used at all our offices, the VoIP controller, the company Wi-Fi unified controller, etc. Baby steps, though.
