  I can tell you that the problem is the your firewall settings. Check
your firewall configuration and make sure that you have ports 443 and 
80 enabled. You keep saying forums, are you referring to Forms-Based
Authentication (FBA)? If this is what you're talking about, make sure
to enable it after you SSL certificate is installed.

Also you're right about the Microsoft link below about how to redirect
http to https site. I followed it some few weeks ago but it did not
work. Go through the articles on site, you will find
one of the articles that show you step by step how to configure it
properly. The article was written by a guy named Henrik Walther. He
also has a book entitled -  CYA: Securing Exchange Server 2003 &
Outlook Web Access. Chapter 5 of this book is somewhere or is one of
the articles at This is the chapter that helped me
resolved a similar problem you're facing now. I'll buy the book pretty
