ssl probs on iis6. tracert www.blah.com 443 results in "Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops"

having probs installing certificate onto iis6 to allow ssl traffic.. have installed certificate authority server onto windows 2k3 and generated a certificate (not sure if i did it right or not but i used standalone root option. Installed the certificate onto a web site on the server and when i run a tracert to that server (for privacy, call it blah.com) it feels like resolving that alphanumeric name to (the actual ip adress is something like 81.xxx.xxx.xxx)

any ideas please? I'm stumped!

C:\>tracert www.blah.com 443

Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

you can't trace on a specific port! :-o

tracert in an ICMP app anyway, so port information is not meaningful.

if you want to test that port 443 is available, first trace:

trace www.blah.com

and then use telnet:

telnet www.blah.com 443

if it is alive, the telnet screeen will just go blank.  if it is not, you will get a connection error.
