I tried to test basic functionality with Test-WebServerSSL, but I got this error:

Exception calling "SendRequest" with "0" argument(s): "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

It must be the firewall issue, I was able to test another url internally.

can you provide the command line you are trying to use?

PS C:> Test-WebServerSSL -URL ebay.com

This is a bug. Main ebay's web site do not support HTTPS, as the result server returns nothing (null), while the code attempts to access certificates. If you try signin.ebay.com, then it should work.
