Unable to access to https sites

Specs: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2

I have installed a "Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 2)" server and I can't access to secure sites (https) that are on the server; I can access to other https sites (hosted on other server) from my server. Besides, users can access to my https site from their PC. The only problem is the access from the own server to the own https pages.

I have tried several things:
- I have add the domain with https in the Trusted Sites Zone but the problem continue.
- I have add the domain with https in the Local Intranet Zone but the problem continue.
- I don't think that the problem is about DNS, because users can access from their PC, besides I can access to the same domain with http (for that, it isn't a routing tables problem because we don't indicate the https protocol in the routing tables)
- I have disabled the Windows Firewall

Note: In Windows Server 2000 it worked correctly

Thanks in advance

For spanish users:


He instalado un servidor Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 2) y no puedo navegar por páginas seguras (https) que están en el propio servidor; si puedo navegar desde el servidor por otras páginas https de fuera. Además, los usuarios si pueden acceder a mis páginas https desde fuera, únicamente no puedo acceder desde el propio servidor.

He intentado varias cosas:
- He insertado el dominio con https en los sitios de confianza y sigue el problema
- He insertado el dominio con https en los sitios de intranet local y sigue el problema
- No creo que sea un problema de DNS, pues se puede acceder desde fuera, y además si puedo acceder al mismo dominio con http (por lo que no es un problema de las tablas de encaminamiento pues ahí no se indica el protocolo)
- El Firewall de windows lo tengo desactivado

Nota: En Windows Server 2000 si me funcionaba

Gracias de antemano

could you try the access from local subnet but not from the computer itself? by using the computers name or ip address?

Make sure if in your web site properties IP Address is set to 'All unassigned'

Thanks for your reply

We can't access from local subnet because it's a shared hosting and we only can access to that server.

I have set IP Address property to 'All unassigned' but it doesn't work.

Thanks in advance

SSL is enable beacuse people can access to the https website from their PC, the only problem is the access to the own https website from the server (for example, in order to execute scheduled tasks).

Thanks in advance
