SSL for W2K Server

I am hosting a website ( on a W2K server. There is a valid SSL but our customers are getting "site not secure" errors with the implementation of the new browser rules.

Is there a fix and/or a SSL that will run on a W2K server.

We are planning an update but I'm looking for a "band-aid" if one exists.

That server is so far out of date that it will not and cannot keep up with current security. Move up your upgrade plans to today.

Tried moving it to W2003, W2008 & W2012. Unfortunately code doesn't work well so it looks like a re-write will be necessary

You can try out the SSLTest to help surface the weak areas. I presume your website is "". If you look at the score, it is actually quite bad - 

Largely is due to the use of a very old W2K server as it has very weak cipher even though it is SSL - having the vulnerable version actually. I proposed that you upgrade your Win2K server as it is already end of life and there is no longer security patches for it. It is vulnerable to the internet threats and band aids may not really work if you are thinking to do a simpler change to application or certificate to the server.

Plan for change asap. Meanwhile, suggest you subscribe to Cloudflare or DosArrest cloud security provider which will have the web appl firewall to provide you that shield and buy you time to make the server changes and upgrades needed.
