    A client certificate issue


    Some our ASP scripts use Msxml2.XMLHTTP object to get the information from other external site.

    The sample of such call is the following:

    ' ==========================================================
    Set xmlhttp = CreateObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
    xmlhttp.Open "GET", "", false
    Response.Write xmlhttp.ResponseText
    ' ==========================================================

    We get the following error when trying to connect to any site with SSL:

    msxml3.dll error '80072f0c'
    A certificate is required to complete client authentication

    We've been trying to install a client certificate as described in the following article:;EN-US;q301429
    but without any luck.

    Please, advice what to do in order to resolve this issue.
    Which exactly certificate we need? Where we can get/buy it? How it should be properly installed?

    Our environment is Windows Server 2003, IIS6.

    Any help is appreciated!

    not quite familiar in programming field, but I believe you need a SSL certificates for the domain you are calling the https.
