I have a site set up on IIS 7.5. I added the following binding...

type: https Host Name: [Blank] Port: 443 IP Address: Binding Information: [Blank]

I can access the site via from the server itself.

When I try to access the site from another machine ( on the same sub-net via I get no response. returns the site as expected.

I have used wireshark to examine the packets on the server, the first of which I have included as an image.

SSL Problem

There were two other packets, very similar to this. There was no response from the server.

Any Ideas?

  • have you checked iis logs? – Cold T Jul 4 '12 at 13:40
  • Yes, and on realizing that IIS was not seeing the request, I figured out the problem. – bnieland Jul 4 '12 at 14:55

So, It turned out to be a windows firewall issue. I had not enabled the appropriate rule. It is worth noting that wireshark (WinPCap) apparently gets to the packets before the firewall. That is what threw me off.
