SSL Issue

Posted on 2013-01-16

I just installed a SSL certificate on our server (Windows 2008 R2 & IIS 7).

When I try to access the site I have a https finding to, via https, I get a username/password dialog box challenge. I don't get it when I try to browse to the site without https.

Any suggestions?

Have you turned on anonymous authentication in IIS?

Anonymous Authentication is enabled.

Basic Authentication is disabled.

Again, it only is a problem when trying to access through https://

Windows Authentication is disabled as well.

However, I figured out the problem. I had another binding to https in IIS to another website on the same IP address. So, I was being directed to that site, not the one I wanted to go to.

Oh well. Thanks for trying!
