I imported a PFX file for a dedicated SSL Certificate from 1and1 for a domain on my web server.

When I visit the domain, I get the message "Data Transfer Interrupted"

I need help debugging this.

What should I do?

Having had this issue in the past the best advice I can offer is to redeploy the cert again. Are you using IIS to deploy the cert to a group of servers? I have had issues with that and I re-deployed the cert using IIS's mechanism to push the cert to other servers.

If that doesn't work there are some fairly decent SSL debugging tools from MS. is one of the best.

The last item that I can think of could be an issue with the SSL cert chain. Sometimes with non-tier 1 SSL providers there are intermediate certs that have to be installed on your certificate repository.
