Hi Tim

Thanks for the response. We tried that and could not get it to work
either.  Turns out our CA is pretty old and still running on a 2003 box.

We were going to roll out RT to our staff first who all use domain machines
that include our root CA cert already.  The web portion worked fine.  We
were going to let our students eventually start sending requests and
planned to get a commercial cert.  This just pushed the time up a few
months.  So now we have a new project, upgrade our CA.
