In the event log of our server when the site does not display a page this is the following error message.


Could not load the cosign config file.  Make sure C:\Program Files\IISCosign\cosign.dll.config is in the correct location and properly formatted.


The path to the config file is C:\Program Files\IISCosign and the file name is cosign.dll.config



The info inside the config file is as follows:




            <CAFilePath>c:\Program Files\IISCosign\SSL\</CAFilePath>

            <ChainFilePath>c:\Program Files\IISCosign\SSL\simscert.pem</ChainFilePath>

            <PrivateKeyFilePath>c:\Program Files\IISCosign\SSL\simsserver.key</PrivateKeyFilePath>

            <LogFilePath fileSizeInKB="4096" >C:\Program Files\IISCosign\Logs</LogFilePath>

            <CookieDBPath>C:\Program Files\IISCosign\CookieDB</CookieDBPath>

            <CosignServer port="6663"></CosignServer>


            <ConnectionPool size="4" /><!--4-->

            <LogoutURL />

            <CookieDBExpireTime seconds="60" />




            <Service website="">






Is there something formatted incorrectly here?  Furthermore when the filter does load it is not redirecting, it does not show any errors anywhere that I can tell either?  A link to the information for PSU to confirm the config file settings is
