I am attempting to setup an IIS6 server with one website (dedicated IP) for HTTPS access using a self-signed certificate.
Any request via HTTPS results in an empty (zero size) response with this somewhat strange status
HTTP/0.9 200 OK
Nothing weird in the request format, just a regular request from the browser (Firefox in this example)
GET https://server-name/ HTTP/1.1 Host: server-name User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:5.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/5.0.1 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-gb,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Connection: keep-alive
There are no proxies between client and server.
HTTP requests are working as expected.
There was a slight hiccup installing the CA certificate (the admin installed it to the wrong account) but this has been fixed.
I've run everything through SSLDiag and it's coming back rosy.
I'm no Windows admin (developer by trade) and the admin here is not very familiar with IIS or the certificate process and is as stumped as I am.
Here's an IIS log extract which shows IIS is indeed seeing the requests
