SSL TImeout

I am having the following issue maybe someone can help.

I am unable to load my site in ssl .

1)I know it is not dns because I can load the site on port 80 via the domain name
2)I know it is not the SSL port because if I input the IP address I can load the site and view the cert and run the app.
3) I also have keep alives turned off
4 when I load with the dns name in the browser it times out
Can someone help me with some troubleshooting ideas or maybe even a potential solution.

OS: windows 2003 sp1
IIS 6 SP1
I am not open to SP upgrades.

After running a request using fiddler I was able to isolate the failure as being dns, it seems there is a redirect for all non https trans so I found a false positive with dns.

Issue resolved thanks for the help guys.

Hi,

what kind of web browser?  are you sure it is not a certificate error?  

there might be host headers associated with the SSL bindings.

check it out with adsutil:

C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts>adsutil get /w3svc/357218252/Securebindings

normally, you should just see something like this:

Securebindings                  : (LIST)  (1 Items)
  ":443:"

or perhaps an IP address included:

Securebindings                  : (LIST)  (1 Items)
  "a.b.c.d:443:"

if you see the ip address on the right hand side:

Securebindings                  : (LIST)  (1 Items)
  ":443:a.b.c.d"

then you'll need to remove it, or add the host header with the correct hostname.

Personally, though, I suspect a problem with the browser.

Cheers.

If you are accessing the site via IP over HTTPS then this indicates that there is a problem in the site configuration.  Check your host headers field and make sure that there isn't something in there that is causing problems.
