OWA won't display on HTTPS:// IE shows 'Cannot display tihs page........'

Hi Guys,
I know this appears to be a common problem but i've looked through the posts but none have helped to resolve this...so...
I've installed Exchange 2003, have tested OWA 'as is' (HTTP://) and it works fine. I've created and installed a certificate and when i enable SSL on the default website i can put it in HTTP:// and it comes up with 'This page can only be accessed through a secure.......' which is good. If i then change it to HTTPS:// the prompt box pops up saying 'you are about to veiw over a secure channel'. when i click ok it comes up with 'Internet Explorer cannot display this web page'. I've tried it from another Vista client and i get the same thing. All attempts are local and through HTTP://locahost/exchange or HTTPS://localhost/exchange.
I've revoked and re-installed the certificate and restarted IIS etc but still no luck.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

If there is a software firewall on the server? is port 443 open?

Also right click "Default Web Site" and click properties. On the "Web Site" tab, ensure that the SSL port is 443. Click on the "Advanced" button and ensure that the "SSL identity" has the IP address set correctly.

Firewall is off and i've checked the port etc and all seems correct.

checked the IP and it was set to the IP of the server but i was trying to access it under the https://servername/exchange instead. I though that this would still resolve it correctly but you have to put in the exact name (or IP) that you reference it by.
Many Thanks
