Re: browser redirection loop

Hi Kris,

that worked for me:
and my reply
 Alright - that worked!

 I really appreciate the help.

 The openssl command returned a good answer, meaning that the certificate
will expire in the future.

 The re/hashing is where the problem was.  I completely overlooked this step
and was heading down the wrong direction with trying to install the um cert
as a trusted ca using windows ca authority.

 After re/hashing the um.pem file and changing the config file - all worked!
(note on windows 2003 - the cosign dll needs to be added as a "Web Service
Extension" and be "allowed" from IIS Manager)
