HTTPS connections timing out

I just created a 3 node, Windows Server 2012 cluster for hosting websites.  HTTP requests are no problem.  HTTPS requests are timing out.  netstat -a shows a 443 port listening.

If there is a proxy on HTTP.

It needs to be same on HTTPS.

No proxy.

We are using Kemp Load Balancers.  One virtual service handles HTTP requests.  Another virtual service handles HTTPS requests.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Can you post any logs from the LB for https requests?

Also, are you off loading the SSL Connection or passing it thru?

I'm with Zaheer. Remove your load balancers + retest.

Setting up load balancers, in a way the really work, can be challenging.

Logs are only visual representations.  HTTP traffic is high.  HTTPS traffic is almost nothing.

I'm not sure about your SSL connection question.

Can you post the details of how the global parameters are set up?

Seeing the configuration with be very helpful.  Screen shots will work as well.

I suspect the first thing to do is take the LBs off.

This would isolate the problem better.

Thanks.

Did you manage to resolve the issues ?

Gary ButtsAuthor Commented:
Yes.

The problem continued to exist even with the LBs out of the equation.

It was, indeed, a DNS issue that has since been resolved.

Thank you for your original suggestion.
