SSL Overview: Part 4, Approve the pending certificate

Continuing through the overview, we're at the point where we need to Approve the pending request.

1) Open the Certificate Authority MMC snap-in form the Administrative Tools menu. Click “Pending Requests”. Right-click the new request, and click “Issue”.
2) From a web-browser, connect to your Certificate Service site (http:///certsrv/”).
3) Click “View the status of a pending certificate request”.
4) Click on the “Saved-Request Certificate”.
5) Download the certificate, choosing “DER encoded”, saving it to your local system (by default this will be called “certnew.cer”)
