I have a Windows 2003 that hosts a Citrix Secure Gateway service. (It is a reverse proxy that adds SSL to my otherwise unencrypted connections)
It doesn't depend on IIS that indeed may also be stopped.
But for one fact: as an SSL proxy, this "secure gateway" must be provided with certificates.
When it comes to create a CSR, i need to revive my IIS, generate the CSR for the CA and install the certificate returned back from the CA (that is, process the csr pending request).
I am wondering if there is another tool in order to do such things because i can easily imagine Windows servers without IIS installed on them and I would like to have a procedure to manage those cases too.
