I followed the instructions in http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//015400000600000000
I am a little confused by the path I need to use to access the services in the end of this document

I configured the GIS Server URL for the web adaptor to be http://MYDOMAIN:6080, and the site works well with a port 80 redirect.

I then change the GIS Server URL to https://MYDOMAIN:6443 like the document states. restart the server and services. I browse to http://MYDOMAIN/arcgis/rest/services and it still redirects through port 80 but works, which I would of thought it would be disabled at this point, I then browse to https://MYDOMAIN/arcgis/rest/services and it doesn't work.

I dont understand what the path in the document "https://webadaptor.domain.com/arcgis/rest/services" means. I tried using "https://webadaptor/arcgis/rest/services" "https://MYDOMAIN/arcgis/rest/services" "https://arcgis/arcgis/rest/services" (since the name of the web adaptor is the default "arcgis")

Thanks for the help.
