I recently bought an Entrust SSL certificate, and when I installed it on IIS 6 (on Win2k3), I'm unable to connect to any of my https://
pages. I get a DNS error the first time, and if I try to refresh, the browser just sort of stalls out.
I had been using a self-signed certificate that created for myself, but I decided to go with a reputable CA to avoid the obnoxious error prompts that will sometimes come up for certs from untrusted publishers. I contacted Entrust user support and got the usual BS about how to install the certificate.
I'm not trying to do anything fancy -- just secure SSL sessions -- and I can't figure out what might be the problem. The cert I bought was intended to be used for the exact purpose I've invoked, and my website is set up properly to work fine with my old self-signed certificate.
Am I missing something with the 'store bought' certificate? Do I have to install it somewhere in the certificate tree that wasn't required for the original one?
