Posted on 2004-10-31
Last Modified: 2010-04-20
I have a windows 2003 server that has IIS 6 installed. The webpage is displayed if I type the Netbios name in, lets call the server Gandalf. If I install an ssl certificate using microsofts certificate server I can get the certificate to display when I try to go to https://gandalf but I simply get page cannot be displayed after accepting the certificte. I am following this article to do the certificate setup.

Has anyone got any idea what I can look at. Thanks in advance

My setup is simply one Windows 2003 Server with the following:-
Exchange 2003
one NIC
