WebDirect not accessible (issue with port https?)

Hosting a database on FMS 14 on a virtual Mac OSX machine. Able to access it both through FMP and FMPA 14 as well as Filemaker Go on iPad, both locally and remotely. I am using a DNS alias because I have dynamic IP, and it works fine when accessing the database through Filemaker apps.


Accessing the same database through WebDirect via the same account (Full Access) fails consistently though. I have tried using different browsers and different PC's to connect. Unfortunately, I do not get a lot to go on as far as error messages are concerned.


Only on Windows IE can I get a little bit more information through the Windows Network Diagnostics tool. Says "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection". The troubleshooter specifies "The device or resource is not set up to accept connections on port https."


I have gone over and over my FMS settings as well as my router's firewall but can't see anything obvious that would fix the problem. But I'm no networking expert, so if anyone has any ideas, I'm listening!
