server's address and port" error message. I tried using stsadm with RSS feed
reader instalaltion and .MSI package with the Gant Chart web part, no luck

If you're enforcing the use of SSL in IIS, then your web  app becomes
known to SharePoint internally by its IP address  only. So, if you are
using the -url parameter of the stsadm, just use https://_ip_address_
instead of https://_fqdn_

Note that you will have to use this notation for pretty much all stsadm
operations - or just leave it out in which case the op will apply to
all portal sites in your configuration database.
