Windows 2003 R2 server with SP2. Installed Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 to the machine and poked a hole in the firewall for 443 (SSL).
I can hit the website but the default document (default.aspx) does not come up automatically. If I add this to the URL, things work fine.
**So the obvious answer, check your default document tab on the IIS website properties window. Did that, it doesn't work. Its already there. I removed index and the others, but nothing changes.**
Its worthwhile to note that this is not the "default website" which is stopped.
