How to Install RemotelyAnywhere with a Self-Signed Server Certificate

    RemotelyAnywhere selects the Server Certificate with the given MD5 hash and uses it to secure RemotelyAnywhere sessions. Automatic certificate generation will be skipped.
    1. Copy the RemotelyAnywhere installation files into the current directory, either from an existing installation or from the installation archive available on
    2. Enter RemotelyAnywhere install -createsssc <HOSTNAME> into a command prompt.

    You can also install RemotelyAnywhere using the MSI Installer and instruct RemotelyAnywhere to create a Self-Signed Server Certificate and use it to secure RemotelyAnywhere sessions. No CA Certificate is generated.

    msiexec /i RA800735nh.msi CREATESSSC=1

    If the CREATESSSCHOSTNAME MSI install option is not used then the hostname of the computer will be used for a certificate common name.
