Cannot connect to Citrix site (HTTPS)

Hello -

I have installed and configured a CSG/WI with a godaddy SSL certificate. I was able to browse to WI site in IIS, but can not access through https. I can see traffic on my TZ190 router as the NAT policys and access rules are in place to allow ports 80-TCP Port 443 - Citrix - Service group.

Policy Statistics shows some traffic

A (Host)  
 Host Points To TTL Actions
 myrapadocs 1 Hour    
 @ 1 Hour    
 CNAMES (Aliases)  
 Host Points To TTL Actions
 www @ 1 Hour    
 mobilemail 1 Hour    
 pda 1 Hour    
 email 1 Hour    
 imap 1 Hour    
 pop 1 Hour    
 ftp @ 1 Hour    
 webmail 1 Hour    
 e 1 Hour    
 MX (Mail Exchange)  
 Priority Host Goes To TTL Actions
 0 @ 1 Hour  Pending Removal
 0 @ 1 Hour    
 10 @

On my WI I deleted my site in hopes I can create a new site and it would work, however when I try to create a new site I get these errors.

The specified value is not a valid URL. The URL must be in a format http://<server>/<sitepath>/reloadConfiguration.aspx

The CSG was installed and below is the diagnostic report:
Version = 3.1.0

Figured out that I had to remove SSL certificate and reinstall after site was created.

I still can not connect to it even after modifying host file.
