Sorry to borther, I'm newbie for IIS. My client has a problem with HTTPS access on his SBS 2003 server which use IIS 6.0.
He want to use OMA to sync with Windows mobile phone's over https. If he type in
http://server/oma on the server, get the login screen, when login he can see the folders of Mailbox. However, when type
https://server/oma I get a error: "webpage cannot be found..." It looks that the website is not running in HTTPS mode. We didn't enable SSL on Default website nor on OMA virtual directory. On my SBS server. However he can use
either Http or HTTPs without problem on other SBS servers, and I can confirm this on my test SBS 2003 environment, by default, both HTTP and HTTPS works.
So my questions are:
1. Why should HTTPS://server/oma work? since I didn't enable SSL 128 on OMA virtual direcotry?
2. Is it possible to redirect (or route) certain HTTPS enabled website request to other IIS server/site? e.g. If I type
https://server1/myweb, it will automatically redirect
https://server2/myweb)? because I would like store all the content of myweb on sever2 instead of server1.
3. Can you give some idea how to resolve my client's issue that described in the above? why
HTTPS://server/oma doesn't work on his SBS server itself? (p.s. he run CEICW and have had self assigned certificate installed)
Thanks in advance for any input!!! ;)

1. SSL is IP based, so you will get response of the request
https://server/oma even you didn't enable SSL on OMA virtual directory. However, the page in OMA virtual directory won't be returned.
2.You can achieve this by using ISAPI URL rewrite or get ISA to set up a reverse proxy server.
is the recommended toolset for troubleshooting problems related to Secure Socket Layers (SSL) or certificates. You can run the tool on the local sever machine to see if there is any error in the output.
