MOSS 2007 and SSL

  Asked By: Sandy    Date: Sep 05    Category: MOSS    Views: 707

I've got a little one that's stumping me so I thought I would take a chance
at asking around. One of our clients, HCBE, recently installed an SSL
certificate on their MOSS server, as they decided to open their portal up to
outside traffic. For the majority, functionality seems to work perfectly,
however there are some glitches.

An example of one is the Export to Spreadsheet functionality that is
presented here and there in their solution.

If I take an example, such as one of their previously exportable survey's,
and try to Export it via:

It will actually open my local copy of Excel, give me the security warning
and allow me to enable the data connection and after doing so, I'm presented
with the following dialog box.

It appears to happen with every type of permission, even the site content
admin, and it has only been happening since they went to SSL.

Any thoughts?

load-balancing solution to use sticky sessions, also called affinity.With sticky
sessions, every request from a particular user is directed to the same Web
Server over the course of a session. This means that only one server needs to
establish SSL connection with the client computer. Without sticky sessions, the
user may encounter "underlying connection was closed" error messages if
subsequent requests are processed by a different web server.

Thanks for the info, and that's good to know! But in this case, we're only
running a single web server. Any other thoughts?

When you added the SSL did you add an Alternate Access Mapping with an
appropriate https:// address?

No, we did not add an Alternate Access Mapping. I've
just done that, and the problem persisted, so I went one step further and
changed the Public URL as well, to face https and that seemed to do the

The list doesn't allow attachments through. You'll need to post them
