I've not yet started to try to integrate IC into my secure server...

Here's what I did to get my commerce.cgi set up to work under SSL.

My cert is made out to secure.idk-enterprises.com .And, of course, it has
it's own IP address and it's own server.
When a customer is ready to check out, the package is set to take them to
http://secure.idk-enterprises.com/storename to get the SSL connection for
checking out.
This, of course, requires a sub-directory under the secure server called
'storename'. And, this is merely a link to the real store subdirectories.

Once I get IC to where I am taking orders, I plan to simply create another
subdirectory under the secure server that is just a link to the real
package - http://secure.idk-enterprises.com/interchange. Possibly that won't
work. I haven't tried it. But the setup that I am presently using is working
very well. All order information that they send me is secured.
