Trying to add another cert, but Connection Refused

I’ve successfully created a certificate for default web site on this server, but I am unable to do it for an additional site. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

My domain is:

I ran this command: letsencrypt.exe --test

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Windows Web Server 2008 R2

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):


This is definitely your server-side issue…

Try visiting your site is throwing an connection refused, hense let’s encrypt validation server can’t reach your site too…

Thank you

Hi @cbaker,

is there a firewall? Or only local access allowed? I don’t get a response from

Opend in a browser: No connection.

Totally Unrelated to your question/problem:
are in need of a security review…


It was the firewall. The first site that worked fine was on a different ip address. I thought I had the second site set up and working correctly on the second ip address, but didn’t consider that I was only testing inside the firewall and never tested from the outside. It’s working fine now - thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
