Note Installation of the Certificate Server Web Client sub-component on a machine without the Certificate Server Certificate Authority component is not supported in this release.
Microsoft® Certificate Server receives client certificate requests through an intermediary application, such as Internet Information Server, that communicates indirectly with the server through the Certificate Server Client Interface. By default, the Certificate Server Client Interface is installed with the server files on the server machine so testing can proceed immediately using just the server machine.
Future versions of Certificate Server will allow additional installations of the Certificate Server Client Interface and the Certificate Server Administration Tools (referred to as the Certificate Server Web Client in the Setup program) to be made on other machines that communicate with the server over the network. This will allow certificate requests to be submitted from one or more remote machines. It will also allow the Certificate Server Web-based administration tools to be run remotely.
