Yes, that certainly makes sense. But just calling a folder SSL doesn't make it secure automatically. It's just a name, nothing more.

However, in IIS you can configure folders or the site to require SSL. SSL in turn uses https://something rather than http://something, so maybe the code in the SSL folder is checking for the protocol, trying to redirect to https when you try to access those pages over http? Hence my question what the address bar of your browser displays when you get the DNS error.....
