We have a problem with certificates.On server (Win 2000 / IIS 5.0) that hosts 4 web sites, we have to install 2 certificates on two nondefault web sites with same IP address. There is no firewall and SSL ports are opened. On properties of both sites ->Directory
Security tab ->Secure communication ->Edit, I checked option Require secure chanell and proceed in code redirection for http to https. When we try to open https:// site_address it displays Security alert and after that 'The page cannot be displayed'. On Default
web site we don't have certificates.
Then, I try to install one of these certificates on Default Web site, and do redirection but I getThe page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because the page address is incorrect.
In right corner I can see the padlock with valid certificate.
It seems that when he try to approach secure connection, first checks what is on Default Web site, and as on Default Web site there is no certificate, he gets error message.
On the other server, with only one Web Site it all works fine (same certificate install procedure is applied).
What we should do to make these certificates work?

Since the two non-default web sites share the same IP address, do they therefore each have their own port? Or are you implementing Host Headers?
If it is the latter, note that SSL with Host Headers in IIS 5 won't work. Here's an article that explains:
187504 HTTP 1.1 host headers are not supported when you use SSL
