  • SSL on IIS

    I never seem to have any luck searching the forums...

    I just installed a wildcard cert on a Win2k3 server. I added the certificates snapin into the mmc and imported the certificate that way. Then I went to the specific website (two running on the server) and assigned the existing certificate to the website in question. THe ssl port is 443, and as far as I Know I don't have to do anything else to enable SSL.

    When I try to browse to the ip or hostname via https or by adding :443 to the url, I get a 'Page cannot be displayed' in IE, and 'The connection was interrupted' in Firefox. I haven't done a port scan to see if 443 is actually open yet, but according to the IIS manager, SSL is enabled.

    Is there anything specific I have to do? I don't want to just require SSL because I'd like to test this out before I commit to it. I'm pretty sure IIS 6 supports both HTTP and HTTPS concurrently on the same site?

    Thanks.

      You're right, that's all that is required.

      I'd suspect this to be the problem. From what you've described it appears to be setup correctly. Assuming there was no issue requesting the cert, and it imported fine then it should work.

      Yes, it does support this. That is unless you check the box in the directory security tab that requires that SSL be used.
