[rabbitmq-discuss] Connecting to RabbitMQ on Windows Server Using Wildcard Cert with .NET Client Using SSL

We were successful in getting the SSL communications between our .NET 
client and RabbitMQ working by following the steps described on the 
RabbitMQ website to use OpenSSL to self-generate certificates and keys.  We 
will be spending a bit more time researching how we can incorporate our 
wildcard certificate at some point, but I don't believe our requirements 
will be broken if we go to production with the self-generated certificate, 
as this server is non-Internet-facing.  I'd be happy to share some of our 
experiences and what we discovered if anyone needs any information.
