How do I configure Public Folder access for OWA users when folders reside on separate servers (using SSL)

I have an Exchange 2003 server set up with Public Folders on two separate servers.  From within the company I can access all public folders and their contents using MS Outlook.  I need to get Public Folder's configured properly so my OWA users can access their information from outside the company's walls though.  This used to work until I required SSL at OWA login.  I can get to the Public Folders on the Exchange box that hosts the mailboxes, but on the other server where there is only Public Folders stored, I cannot access them using OWA.  I click on the folders and get a "this page can not be displayed" error message.  Any one know where I can begin troubleshooting this?

Not having found a reasonable answer I'm closing this question.  My resolution is to move all the public folders to the same server so they can be seen from OWA.  Seems like a poor solution, but it will take care of my problem for now and I can get back to work.  Thanks for the help.  Please refund my points since there wasn't an acceptable solution.

Have you enables SSL access on the other pubic folder server? What is the name registered in your SSL certificate? Did you install the certificate on the other server also?
Let me know.

I have not enabled SSL on the other public folder server.  The name registered in the SSL certificate is mail.domainname.com so I didn't install a certificate on the other server.  I assumed if I didn't require SSL for the public folders it wouldn't be necessary?

It depends on how you installed the certificate, if you installed it on the website level and since both OWA and Public folders are virtual directories within the same website, they will both require secure access.
You are able to access the public folders on the first server, cause the certificate is installed automatically on it, but your second server does not have a certificate.
To test this, check what is the URL when you try to access public folders on your second server does it start with HTTPS or HTTP?

I checked to see if OWA was looking for a secure website and it was (https) so I installed a certificate on the second server, but it's still the same error.
