Use of Microsoft stand-alone root CA for VPN, Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP)

Discussion in 'Server Networking' started by Edward W. Ray/502974, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. I currently have a Windows 2003 native Active Directory Domain located
    behind a Netscreen-50 firewall. One of my domain controllers is set up as a
    stand-alone root CA. The Windows AD computers have no routable IPs; they
    are all NAT mapped behind the firewall. A DHCP server runs behind the
    firewall to assign static IPS to each computer which joins the domain. I
    plan to use a Netscreen 5GT at the client end to establish the VPN tunnel.
    Some questions:

    1. Can I keep the domain controller NAT-mapped or will I have to assign
    it a routable static IP?

    2. Is it possible to use SCEP to automate enrolling a PKCS10 cert
    request?

    3. Will I need to install the certificate on the 5GT prior to
    establishing the tunnel?

    4. Can a VPN connected computer join a Windows 2003 native AD domain?

    5. Can I join the remote computer to the Windows 2003 AD through the VPN
    tunnel, or will I have to join it prior to establishing the VPN tunnel?

    I already have a Netscreen doc to guide me through the VPN connection. If
    there are some corresponding Microsoft docs which address my questions,
    please provide the link.

    Thanks in advance!
