I'm trying to estamblish https on port 55434 (different than standard 443). My nginx configuration looks like this:

server {
  server_name         example.org;
  listen              55434 ssl;
  ssl                 on;
  ssl_certificate     /etc/ssl/certs/example.org.crt;
  ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/private/example.org.key;
  ssl_protocols       SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
  ssl_ciphers         HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;

  ...
}

Port 55434 is open

iptables -L
ACCEPT     tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            tcp dpt:55434

Port 55434 is listening:

netstat -a | egrep 'Proto|LISTEN'   
tcp        0      0 *:55434                 *:*                     LISTEN 

Certificate was generated by https://www.startssl.com/. When I visit https://example.org:55434 I get following response.

wget https://example.org:55434

Firstly I thought that port 443 is blocked by my host provider. wget https://example.org --no-check-certificate

So, does it work on port 443? –  Oliver Salzburg Mar 18 '13 at 15:08

can you provide version information for wget and nginx and provide a more complete configuration? The configuration above itself should work just fine (normally one would either specify ssl on the listen line or ssl on; not both) btw. this probably belongs to serverfault rather than superuser... –  rbtux Mar 18 '13 at 15:11
    
Related (not duplicate, just a good FYI): What is the largest TCP/IP network port number allowable for IPv4? –  Breakthrough Mar 18 '13 at 19:02
    
So, from your update I take it that your problem is completely unrelated to using a nonstandard port... –  Oliver Salzburg Mar 18 '13 at 19:14
