I set it up for the first time yesterday using sembee's instructions (the amset.info link above).  It worked out fairly straightforward, except for the permissions on the RPC virtual folder in IIS were completely wrong by default for some reason, so watch out for this.
I used the 30 day free trial SSL certificate from www.freessl.com as sembee suggested, worked perfectly!  Very handy to be able to try it all out before committing to buying a certificate for a couple of years...

I have gone through all this and it still does not work..

I did not buy a certificate... I did use my SBS server to generate one... will this work at least for testing...?

The default permissions from install are correct, if they are different then that is usually because someone has made changes to the default web site and then unfortunately propogated those changes to subfolders

Glad you got it sorted
