We are in the process of setting up an internal only install of Portal and running into SSL issues.  We are a tiny organization and our IT consists of a total of 6 people and that includes myself, the media tech, and 4 people who actually do IT.  We have no internal domain CA and our one Networking guy (who is new) doesn't really have any SSL experience.   We are currently looking at certs online and there is a large variety in levels and costs.  The installation instructions make it clear about needing a cert but I didn't really see anything that talks about exactly what kind of cert I would need.  We tried talking to the company that we get our website cert from and they were trying to say that we needed a cert that was going to cost in the 700 range.  That seems excessive for a site that is accessible only from in our network.  Can somebody who knows a bit more about certs give me a little more explanation about what kind of cert it is that I need to be purchasing?
