SSL Setup on IIS Server

I'm having trouble setting up our business server with SG560 router. We are using Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0. The HTTP with port 80 works perfect which is port forwarded on the router. But when I try to use SSL, the router does not forward the port I used (port 8888). I have disabled every kind of firewall on the server.

The IP address is [url removed, login to view]

When I access it with HTTP, it works fine. But anytime I use SSL, it just gives me connection timeout. Both ports are forwarded exactly the same.

I think something is blocking it because everytime I try to access the SSL port, the router registered the access as a hit. But on my server log, there is only access of HTTP and no HTTPS logs at all.

Does anyone know what the problem is?
