Secure Your Web Server With SSL - Making sure the SSL certificate works
(Page 4 of 5 )

Testing your new SSL certificate is simple. Simply create a new HTML/ASP page in a directory under your web site. Next, fire up your favorite web browser and load the page that you have just created. Instead of using the normal http://www.myserver.com/page.html syntax, change the http:// to https://. This tells the web server that a secure connection is being requested. If your certificate is installed correctly, you will notice a padlock in your browsers’ status bar. Double click on the padlock to view the details of your web servers’ certificate.

Congratulations, you have successfully installed a SSL certificate on your web server! If you received a configuration error in your browser, visit msdn.microsoft.com and search for the error number you received. The search should find several knowledge base articles that will help you remedy the problem(s).
