Leonardo,

hi. In that case I don't think there's way to make SSL enabled with generic certificate. Each installation should obtain their own certificate, based on their own common name they use to access the webserver. You can't get certificate for 'localhost', you could for public name if it belongs to you. If they are using dialup public IP addresses and their corresponding names, which actually belong to ISP, you will not be able to obtain their official certificates as well.

However, you could create your own set of certificates which customers would need to install on their system, manually during the installation. Perhaps that would be option for you? Note, in that case you would compromise the security in case your certificates leak in way to be used by 3rd parties.

Regards,
Jasmine.
