Hello,

I tried to secure a windows azure virtual machine following the tutorial below
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/tutorial-secure-web-server

No error message all the way, but the website in this VM still cannot be accessed by https.
FYI, it can be accessed by http without problem and there is no domain name for this VM yet, it's accessed by public IP address.

Please advise, thank you in advance.

    Thank you for the kinds words. OK first, let's put away the question about certificate and so on. We should be able to see the website even with the https with the error message "this page is not secured etc."

    According what you're telling me, it sounds like a network issue if slow loading. Did you create the correct opening flow to be able to access to your virtual machine on the port 443 (https/TCP) ? Depending on your personal configuration, it might be configuring the associated NSG (Network Security Group) or a true firewall if you have so. Keep in mind you will need to do that in the flow control you may have in Azure but also internally on the Integrated Windows Firewall (if activated).
