I have installed Autodesk Inventor Vault Server on a Windows 2008 Server. The instructions I have are incomplete and refer to a 2003 Server installation. I am trying to set up IIS for remote access to the vault, and I have a couple of questions.
1. Do I need to purchase a certificate to put under the site called "Inventor Vault"?
2. How can I test the installation to see if it is working?
You are trying to have users connect to Vault from outside of the firewall without VPN? I believe you should only have to ensure the ports are open to communication - testing should be fairly straight forward in terms of pinging the server from an external device, connect using a client or try to resolve one of the Vault services.
