IIS 6 Wildcard SSL Certificate

I purchased a wildcard SSL certificate to install on a Windows 2003 Server STD SP2 running IIS 6.0.  I was able to install the wildcard certificate successfully via the MMC/Certificates Add-in and attach it to the website.  I modified the host header for the SSL to respond using the adsutil.vbs command (see below example) but was unable to get it to respond to the request in the end.

I know the IIS 6 supports wildcard certificates and that I can have a site respond to multiple host headers using the same IP address but I get nothing.   What is missing???

C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts>cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/1/SecureBindings ""

for testing I usually edit my hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc) and put in the domain name this way I can use my browser to test the host headers as or any other variation of this will not work. i.e.

Yes,  actually that is how I'm able to test various host headers and URLs.  I use that method all the time.  

However, the problem I'm having is to do with the wildcard SSL certificate.  It seems to be installed fine on the server.   But I just can't seem to get it to respond based on the URL I'm using over SSL.
