GUI Tool for using Httpcfg.exe to configure SSL on a given port

In my previous posts I had metioned on how to get SSL working with the new HttpListener class in whidbey 2.0 Beta1. It was sort of difficult to use the command line httpcfg tool as I had to manually open the machine store, pick a cert and copy its thumbprint and the run it using the command line. Thought it would be nice if I could have a GUI that would let me do this. I also thought it would be fine to have a way to create/delete/view existing SSL configurations. I came up with such a tool and I have posted the download on gotdotnet. The link for the tool is here. Download and use the tool andhopefully its useful.

Some Requirements/Information before you download the tool.

1. Tested on Win2k3 and WinXP.

2. Requires .NET 2.0 Beta1 framework.(Atleast v2.0.40607)

3. To open the machine store, you need to be the admin on that machine.

4. You need to have httpcfg.exe in your system path. It can be downloaded from here for winxp. It comes as a part of support tools for win2k3 and XP.  I could have attached the exe but dont think I can redistribute it.

The readme.txt tells you how to use it. Its failrly straight forward but any suggestions on how to improve it is welcomed. I plan to update the code once Beta2 is released and if there are any changes from beta 1.

  1. One of my first posts was a link to my managed UI wrapper that let users view/configure/edit SSL certificates
