Hi. I have have two web-applications running on two different servers which are communicating through HTTPS.
I have implemented SSL keystore, certificate and all the necessary arrangements to run secure port.
I am able to view pages securely when i run individually. But when i try to redirect form one application to another application's page through HTTPS, IE7 showing error message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".
Note : It is working finely in Mozilla Firefox.Please help me out resolving this issue.

Open the Internet Options in IE, go to the Advanced tab and uncheck "Show friendly HTTP error messages". Having that option enabled is a nightmare for web developers as they cannot see any error that's generated by the server. See if you get some more information now.

I have unchecked. Still it is showing the same message. Before showing that message, it is telling certificate issue. but i have imported certificate into IE.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
