SSTP Certificate Problem

    General discussion

  • Hi, I've set up a 2008 server for use as a VPN server. I can access the server via PPTP but I would like to use SSTP! I've got to the point that when I try a SSTP connection I get the following error "80072AFC The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found.". Can anyone help? TIA

  • I would assume that this is on a VPN?  If so, what systems are running the infrastructure?  Is it Server 2008 or 2003?  You might have a certificate validation error.  Check with the Online Responders or the CRLs and see which certs were revoked for a start.

  • Cron,

    This thread was from 6 months ago, but not sure if the OP found a solution.


    The message is saying it's reading the cert, however, it's not accepting it. This error is usually indicative of either the cert is not trusted, the Root CA cert and/or the intermediate cert is not installed on the machine.

    Check the Certificate snap-in (Start, run, mmc, add snap-in, for Computer), and make sure the Root CA and any chained CAs are in there.

    Can you provide more detail on how you setup RRAS, what type of CA is running (Windows 2003, 2008, 2008R2 Standard or Enterprise), and what type of certificate (v1 or v2), you installed on the RRAS server, please?

    See this thread for some ideas, too

     If this does not help, I suggest posting this to the Security forum (which deals with Certificates). Maybe we can ask Tiger to move this thread to that forum for you.
