We have a SP2007 farm for staging.
Suddenly the CA is not longer available when using the hostname, but only via the IP.


https://servername:port does not work ('page canot be displayed'


http://IP_address:port, works fine and the CA is displayed.

Whjat could be the root cause of this behaviour?
