How to setup WSS using SSL

Postby chicagotech » Sat Apr 26, 2008 4:26 pm

Q: I have wss v3 running on SBS 2003. The SBS SSL web site works fine. However, wss using port 8000 doesn't work when accessing it using https and I receive "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message". I think the problem is because the wss uses port 8000. To make ssl work, should I create the wss under default web site? if yes, how do you do it? or can I still use port 8000 for wss using the ssl?

A: I'd like to assure you that it is not required to host a SSL website on the Default website.

Step 1: Check IIS settings
================
1. Open IIS manager, right click the WSS 3.0 website and click Properties.
2. On the Web Site tab, click Advanced.
3. Make sure that the SSL port is 8000.
4. On the Directory Security tab, click View Certificate under Secure communications. Make sure that the server certificate has been installed on this website.

5. Click Edit under Secure communications.
5. Check off "Require secure channel (SSL)".
6. Click OK.

Step 2: Check AAM settings on MOSS Central Administration
================
1. Open SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration, and click Operations > Alternate Access Mapping.
2. Select the My Site web application.
3. Make sure that Internal URL is https://servername:8000 and Public URL for Zone is https://servername:8000 on the Default zone.

It works. Thank you.

So SSL port can be any port. Right?

- In answer to your question, the SSL port can be any port. We only need to ensure that no other website is hosted on the same port unless the host header is involved.

For more information about IIS technology, you may refer to the IIS 6.0 Documentation on TechNet.
