The SSL Diagnostics tool is a very useful tool for troubleshooting SSL issues. It generates a detailed report of SSL settings for all the websites on an IIS server which helps in quickly identifying SSL issues. But the tool was built for IIS 5 and 6, there is no version available which is compatible with IIS 7. The SSL Diagnostics tool does succeed in generating a report on IIS 7 if the IIS 6.0 Metabase Compatibility feature is installed. To help troubleshoot SSL issues on IIS 7 I have written a tool which works in a similar fashion. It scans all the websites and FTPS sites configured on the server and generates a report which can help in identifying SSL issues.


Generate Report – Scans all websites and FTPS sites on the local server. If a certificate association is found it will list details of the certificate. It also performs a certificate validation on the certificate. For SSL bindings it also attempts to check if a TCP connection can be established.

Simulate SSL Web Request – Right clicking on a https binding gives you this option. It generates a SSL Web request based on the selected binding and displays the response received.

Verify Store – Basically is the output of certutil –verifyStore MY. Useful in identifying certain issues with certificates.


Hope it helps in reducing your troubleshooting time on SSL issues.
