Website is timing out over through HTTPS. Website can be viewed from the server, but anywhere else

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I cant access my website over SSL from any computer out in the public. On the server, the site can be reached over HTTPS, but if I try outside the web server, it just times-out. Any ideas??

I have SSL required set under Secure communications, installed the cert through Directory Security and installed the Intermediate cert through the MMC and placed it into the Intermediate Certificate store.

Again, server side, I can get to the site via HTTPS. Outside the server, it doesnt work and timesout.

Using IIS6 on Win Server 03.
