When I connect to my SBS over the internet using port 8080 with Firefox 3 beta 5, I get an ssl_error_rx_record_too_long error, saying that my server sent a malformed SSL request. It starts working fine again if I allow unsecured connections.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your error means: SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

This is an issue with the FF Beta and you should not use it for a production environment. If you switch over to a released version of FF or Internet explorer this will resolve your issue. Expect the security to be brought up to snuff in the final version or at least a RC for 3.

I actually solved this on my own… it turns out that RWW and OWA were forcing SSL connections on port 443, which was not forwarded to the server. I forwarded this port, and now it works. For the record, it wasn’t work on any version of Firefox or IE7.
