HTTPS not working

Posted on 2009-12-31
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
After installing an SSL certificate I cannot connect to the mail server using HTTPS.
Example: https:\\ https:\\\exchange.

I am trying to configure an iphone. I understand that the certificate is needed.
I am able to go into IIS and  browse to the following sites under default website: Exchange,OMA,public. I get a login prompt when browsing to Microsoft-server-ActiveSync.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Accepted Solution

    What version of Windows and Exchange are you using?
    Can you please confirm that you have port 443 and 80 open on the router and on any another firewall you have in place.

    I ran the tests and found that DNS had to a HOST record.
    The firewall needed to be tweaked.
