I am trying to run an SSL website on port 444.
I think i have succesfully configured it in IIS7 changing the port in the bindings from 443 to 444.
If i browse to my website locally, either using (https://localhost:444) or (https://mysite.com:444) locally it works and I do not have have SSL errors.
As soon as I try to browse to the same website (https://mysite.com:444)from any other domain machine, i get a 404 error, page cannot be displayed.

Any ideas?

Notes:
I am running only one website in my IIS server. There are not other websites bound to the same port or other SSL ports.

Hi,

If it loads locally from the server browsing
      https://localhost:444 
      https://mysite.com:444

Then it is a firewall or DNS issue.

1. Confirm that the firewall is open for port 444. That is a custom port. You can test this by using TELNET from a client pc.

IE: CMD> telnet mysite.com 444

2. from a client PC run NSLOOKUP to confirm DNS is setup.
IE: CMD> nslookup mysite.com

Cheers,
