Network Login Failed for ISA with SharePoint SSL


ISA 2006 on a Windows 2003 SP2 - NOT tied to the domain
SharePoint Server with multiple extranet sites
Wildcard SSL Certificate issue from Network Solutions

I currently have about 10 SharePoint Portals. Each has an Extranet so we can view the site from the outside world. I recently obtained a Wildcard Cert from Network Solutions. I've bound the certificate to one of the Extranet sites by using the following command:

cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<site identifier>/SecureBindings ":443:<host header>"

I can see that 443 is bound to that Extranet site.

Incoming traffic gets routed through our ISA 2006 server. I've created a web publishing rule and created a listener for this extranet site. When creating the rule and listener, I followed the following article :


The SSL Wildcard certificate has been installed on the ISA server and is bound to the external NIC of the ISA server.

Every time I try from home to goto "https://portal.mysite.com" I'm told in IE that the page isn't able to be displayed. I then look in the Monitoring -> Alert section of ISA and find the following:

Description: ISA Server was unable to establish an SSL connection with portal.mysite.com. The network logon failed.

 The failure is due to error: The network logon failed.

Can anyone help in figuring out what is causing ISA to report this error?!?!?!

Did you deploy the certificate on your IIS?

The SSL Cert is installed in IIS and is also bound to the extranet with the host headers as described using this command

cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<site identifier>/SecureBindings ":443:<host header>"
