Web Service - HTTP(S)Listener with SSL ?

I currently have a web service that is basically an HTTP Listener config'd as an HTTPS listener.. ready to listen on port 443. It is not in any way using IIS.

Can anyone provide any insight for a way to set this up to work with SSL

In other words... the listener is simply running, and detects an incoming connection on port 443. That needs to be an SSL connection.

I'm having a difficult time understanding how to obtain the proper certificate and install it on the server since IIS isn't involved.

I got a test certificate from Thawte (21 day trial) by using IIS to produce the Certificate Signing Request.. but again, my web service doesn't use IIS... so I don't really think that does me any good.



Thanks for any help...
