  • Localhost gives "Connection was reset" under HTTPS

    Apr 01, 2010 04:37 PM|sempf|LINK

    I am working the lab for AD FS titled "Web Sites and Identity".  The lab setup installs IIS7 and sets up a secure site for you.

    When I browse to my localhost in SSL, I get "Connection was reset" in Firefox and the totally unhelpful "Internet Expolrer cannot display the web page" in IE8.  HTTP works fine.

    I am going to set up fiddler and see what is going on under the covers but the fact is that I have little IIS7 experience and I might be missing something really easy.  I thought I would ask here and see if someone could point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance!

    Never mind, I figured it out.

     The script didn't set the SSL Binding.  Found the direction I needed here:


    (yay Gu!)

    I just needed to set the 443 binding to the right certificate in the default web.

    Sorry to bother you all.  Back to your regularly scheduled programming.
