Can you explain more of what you mean by "can not connect using the above scanning URL"?
If there is something preventing SSL labs from connecting to your sites, this will probably hinder others.
There are other scanners, I'll only list those that check the security / validity of your cert. Some, for instance, are geared towards just checking for correct installation. These actually test SSL security factors.  (That being said, it's very hard to beat Qualys's SSL Labs.)

Then I should be looking at other aspects of the secure website like
what Pen Test scans do : Tcp timestamp, folders of the IIS is listable
etc

SSL Labs testing makes a lot of requests to the site it is testing.  Some sites reject the requests at times on the basis that it is not a 'normal' method of requesting the site.
