Good day to you all,

We have this little problem where we dont have any clue now on how to fix this. The problem is the following;

1. We have a functional IIS enviorment that doesnt pop any errors as of late,
2. We have a functional Certificate (as far as IIS is concerned, no errors what so ever)
3. We have a second https enviourment installed without any errors and functional on a different virt IP.
4. IIS Error logs only contain closed browser entries
5. Http port (80) of the website in question is fully functional
6. Netstat tells us IIS is listening on both port 443 and 80 (also without the second https web enviorment)
7. Firewall is disabled
8. Have the guest accounts in place on both the application pool and directory structures (80 is functional without problems).
9. Cant seem to find any bind errors or other in the windows event logging, or any other IIS related entries next to "start and stop" from the IISrestart command.

Now im realy confused at this point. We experience a connection reset on the 443 page (https://url/) without a cert warning or other for one of the installed sites on this IIS enviorment. The installed website is actually the front end of MOSS2k7 TR. And the question i have is as followed.

Is anyone aware of any dependancies conserning the usage of SSL on a website that either the website or the bound application pool can influence? and or is there anyone that has ever exerianced a problem simular to mine and might be able to point me in an direction that might give me some clues on whats going on here? Ill give you some other information that is relative to IIS in conjunction with this specific website..

1. Its a clean install of the OS (windows 2k3 EE), IIS, MOSS where moss.
2. The website requires ASP.Net 2.
3. Dont have any limitations in auth settings, guest is granted acces.
4. MOSS does use NTLM authentication for its own security model.
5. Windows Integrated security is enabled
6. The box is member of a native Windows 2k3 Domain.
7. NTP and others are all synced and controlled by the DCs.

Any hint or explaination regarding the above question is welcome, or any hand out that might lead me in the right direction..

Regards, and thanks.. i know this is a tough question..
