In FrontPage Explorer, when you open or create a new Web by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), you may receive one of the following error messages:
There is no server on port 443 at 'server name'. You have selected the option 'Connect Using SSL'. This connection problem may indicate that the server does not support Secure Socket Layer (SSL) communications, or that it uses SSL communications on a different port number.
Unable to connect to server at 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' on port 443 (socket code 13101).
Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx represents the host name or Internet Protocol (IP) address of your FrontPage Web.
SSL connections require a security certificate. Socket code 13101 is generated when the security certificate is not from a recognized certificate authority or when it is from a recognized certificate authority but it cannot be read by FrontPage.
FrontPage 98 can correctly read public keys that begin with values other than 1 if they are from a recognized certificate authority.

NOTE: FrontPage 98 does not support 128-bit encryption.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
SSL is a World Wide Web feature that supports data encryption and server authentication. All data sent to or from the client by using SSL is encrypted.

You can obtain digital certificates from Verisign or AT&T.
