    Https sites and links not opening

    After connecting to Internet, when I try to open any https websites, I simply get - “This page cannot be displayed”. I am using Internet Explorer 6. as my web browser. I have tried opening https links using another browser also, but same error occurs. Does anyone familiar with how to solve this ?

    thanks

    You will need to uninstall firewall in order to test the involvement of the firewall activities completely. Also, disable ALL services associated with it. Try opening https sites using another User Account.

    Sometimes https gives page error - "The page cannot be displayed" because the browser encryption settings may have been disabled

    In Internet Explorer,

    > select Help
    > About Internet Explorer
    Make sure that 128-bit encryption is enabled.

    Perform settings to "Force" https for the entire domain. For your domain, check the box "Use New Features" which may be turned on to always use SSL function. We are hesitant to turn this on for all our clients, but we may do so. Hopefully the "always use SSL" box will migrate out of "New Features" into a default feature soon.

    Since you've already tried opening https sites and links using another different brower and still the problem has remained, its surely a firewall issue....I would advice you to disable all the firewall settings and check whether https sites are able to open.
