Virtual directory does not allow contents to be listed using SSL certificates in IIS 6

I have an IIS 6 server with 6 different web pages.  All different web page headers but same internal IP address.  Each virtual web page has the ip address listed, not " all unassigned".  The 4 web pages, virtual directory setup, work fine from outside organization and internally. These 4 working web pages have just anonymous access allowed.   But the 2 web pages set up with SSL certificates receive the following error when trying to access the web page from outside the organization:  "Directory listing denied.  The virtual directory does not allow contents to be listed."  The certificates are valid.  The authentication is both anonymous and check windows authentication.  The default home page can be found, I'm just unsure as to which setting would be causing this in iis.  Also, the NTFS security is default and there are currently no iusr_servername on the web page directory.   Any and all help is appreciated.

It sounds like your default document is not correct on your site.  Double check the default document, and if that doesn't work, check the Directory Listing box to see if you get a browse listing.

Best of luck,

The certificates for SSL are hard coded in the default.html page.  I needed to put in the specific IP address in each of the IIS settings for the web page, so that the correct web page got the correct certificate.  Then the initial web page came up correctly.  The original setting was "All IP addresses", once I changed that to the specific ip  the web pages started functioning, by applying the correct certificate for the page, and then opening.  Thanks for your help.
