Multiple SSL Sites on IIS

With host headers, you are able to create many websites on a single windows 2003 server machine. However as most people have realized, what happens if you run multiple sites that need SSL? The fix is that each site must have it's own specific ip address, since SSL needs to bind with a specific IP and site because the host headers are encrypted.

This will also mean you will need another static IP if you are performing port forwarding back into your web server.

I am guessing this is the same problem you will have on Apacahe but I haven't tried it.
