Failed Connect Attempt - SSL-Tunnel on ISA 2006

Posted on 2009-02-10
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I am unable to connect to one particular secure web site.  As are as I know, other secure web sites are able to be accessed, just not this one.  According to the ISP, they are not blocking the web site or its IP.  I am able to access the non-secure version of that web site that is hosted on the same machine with the same external IP.

Failed Connect Attempt - is the error that I get...  It may help to say that the web host is running ISA 2004.  They see connection attempts and after the connection, there is a disconnect, just as there is with ISA with any other connection.

Any ideas?

    It is completely accessible from everywhere else...just not when going through the isa server.  I am able to get to the site when using the ISP, but bypassing the isa server...

    where is?

    Accepted Solution

    Turns out that the answer was right in front of me...url redirects were opening up an endless loop of connections and the ISA automatically blocked the IP.
