QuickLinks webpart displays things like:

I found a knowledge base article but it did not solve my problem. I have set
application protection level on the portal virtual directory to LOW - no
difference. Several times I deleted and recreated the extranet site doing
everything just as described in MS extranet whitepaper.

When I switch to HTTPS I always end up with the above problem.

I finally fixed that strange  SSL problem:

deleted  all external sites from IIS -> Reboot

Added the external site  again with the extranet  vb script from MS -> Reboot

Added SSL as described in Extranet.doc -> Reboot

Again rebooted twice, then suddenly it worked!

Don't know why, but I'm lucky now.

i had the same problems, it was a problem  with the certificate.
maybe something ist wrong with it, or you have to install the server  certificate
on the sps  server.

i opened the certificates.msc snap in and added the certificate to the
"Trusted Root Certification Authorities\Certificates" on the SPS server.

I gave your hint a try - unfortunately without success. The SSL problem
persists. Still those silly Links:
