Sample SSL Web Server

posted on 2003/10/13

I am having trouble getting the sample SSL web server to serve up HTTPS web pages to Internet Explorer 6.0 in Windows XP. What are some things I should check; or was this web server only meant to serve up information to the accompanying sample web client?

The WebServer example works with any browser, so IE, Mozilla or the WebClient example should work. However it will always return the same page.

What kind of errors are you getting? Are you able to connect to the server using the WebClient example? Are you sure the certificate you're using is a server certificate and are you sure the associated private key can be found?

You can find a file 'server.pfx' in the directory of the WebServer example. Have you tried using this PFX file when starting the server? [the password of the file is 'test']

Okay, using the supplied pfx file, I got it to work. It must be something wrong with my certificate.

Thank you,
