Generating a CSR

I am a consultant for a company in another state and have been asked to create a CSR to renew their SSL Certificate. Do I need to have access to their server in order to create the CSR? I have IIS on my computer but it is not their server. Thanks for any help.


You could create it on your IIS server…however, that presents a security risk as
you have access to the private key.

Due to this, I would recommend that you only create the CSR on the IIS server running the web site.
