Question [Apache-SSL]: Invalid method in request !g!!

Hi people,

I'm using:

* Red Hat Linux 8.0
* Apache 2.0.40-11.5
* openssl 0.9.6b-33

Now I've tried setting up a ssl so I can access my stuff with https://...etc... Everything configured and httpd starts with no errors.

Now when I try to access my site with or with https://ting/webmail with Mozilla 1.4 I get this dialogbox:

"The connection to has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred. [OK]"

In IE 6.0 I get: a "The page can not be displayed" error when going to the url's mentioned above.

In the error_log of apache I see this when trying with Mozilla:
[Sun Jul 20 11:16:55 2003] [error] [client] Invalid method in request !g!!

This one occurs only when I try with IE:
[Sun Jul 20 11:25:12 2003] [error] [client] Invalid method in request !L!!

Can anyone help me with this?

About the config. This is the only thing I added to httpd.conf to try make ssl work:
Listen ting:443

This is what my ssl.conf looks like (I've included it within httpd.conf):

ServerName ting
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
TransferLog /var/log/httpd/access_secure_log
ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/error_secure_log
SSLLog /var/log/httpd/ssl_log
SSLLogLevel trace
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /usr/share/ssl/ting.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/share/ssl/ting.key
SSLCACertificatePath /usr/share/ssl/certs
SSLCARevocationPath /usr/share/ssl/certs
#Allow users who possess a valid certificate to access the /extranet URI.
Alias /webmail/ /var/www/html/webmail/
<Directory /var/www/html/webmail>
SSLVerifyClient require
SSLVerifyDepth 1

Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
