That's true if each of his servers will have the
same common name (CN). But if one server resides

Mozilla/Netscape browsers are quite picky if it
comes to wrong CN attributes.

BTW Dave - If you did install Apache together with
mod_ssl the mod_ssl manual could be found at:

  -> http://localhost/manual/ssl/
