Insane IIS6 Behavior

Postposted on Fri Sep 24, 2010 1:46 pm

I have an older, but not yet antique, server running IIS6 on Server 2003. I have a website on another server (iis7, server 2008). The former server is largely unused so I wanted to comission it as a temporary development server. I created a site in iis6, moved my files over, it works fine. I now need to begin my testing, and what I am testing is TSL, SSL2.0 and SSL 3.0. I generated a certificate for the site, installed it, and when I try to connect it doesn't work. It just gives me a bland "cannot connect to SLL" error. If I connect without HTTPS, no issues.

I have generated multiple certs, tried different IPs to assign it, with or without host headers, no matter what SSL will not work on this site on the server. I found a tool to examine SSL problems, which reports the following errors for the site:

#AcquireCredntialsHandle failed with error -2146839043

I've googled this, to no real relief. Any ideas beyond the above would be greatly appreciated, I'm at my wits end.

thanks for the link bu I'm not using a virtual host in this case. While the default website has no host header or ip address (all unassigned) the site for which I am having problems with on the same server has a specific ip set, so I assumed this wouldn't apply or cause a conflict.
