LimitLogin Windows 2003 Server utility: error during domain setup installation

Dear Experts,
After extensive research, I have found that neither W2K3 or W2K8 offer any facility to limit users' concurrent logins (I eat my words Novell - at least you had that sorted ages ago!). The universal recommendation is to get the LimitLogin utility.

I have started the installation, however during the second install phase, the domain setup, I systematically get this error message:
"the underlying connection was closed:unable to connect to the remote server"

This happens when the utility is trying to connect to the local IIS server (on the same machine). I have setup SSL communiaction as directed by the instructions.

Does anyone have any experience dealing with this issue?

your help is greatly appreciated.
