Let me start by saying, when I use SSL to HTTP bridging I do not have any problems connecting.
The problem I have is using SSL to SSL bridging. When I use the domain name (the same as the certificate) in the To tab of the secure web publishing rule I get error 12206 proxy chain loop error. If I replace the domain name with a IP address or computer name I get error 500. I've been trying to find the root cause of this error "12206" for some time now, but no luck.
ISA 2004 with SP1 WAN: 216.xxx.xxx.82,216.xxx.xxx.83 LAN: 192.168.1.1 DMZ: 172.16.0.1
Web Server W2K3 SP1 DMZ: 172.16.0.2 Installed stand-alone root ca Created certificate www.mydoamin.com mydomain properties: checked require a secure channel checked require 128 bit encryption checked basic authentication
Exported certificate to PFX file
Imported PFX file to certificate store in isa 2004 Added certificate www.mydomain.com to certificate folder under the personal folder Added the ca certificate under the Trusted Root Certificate Authorties folder
Created a secure web publishing rule Selected SSL Bridging Rule Action: Allow Selected connection to clients and web server Computer name or IP address: www.mydomain.com path:/* Accepted request for: www.mydomain.com
Created SSL Listener External network listener: 216.xxx.xxx.83 Enabled SSL for port 443 Selected certificate: www.mydomain.com
Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the help but unfortunitly this article won't help since my external dns address is not listed on the external network adapter and my internal network adapter is at the top of the list. As I said before this error only happens with ssl to ssl bridging. If I use non ssl web publishing rule or ssl to http secure publishing rule every thing works well.
