Sharepoint 2003 Backup with SSL Enabled

I configured SSL for my Sharepoint 2003 site so that I could access it from the Internet.
Read more about that here

After I set that up I found that my Sharepoint 2003 backup script was failing.
Here is the error:
The server instance specified was not found. Please specify the server's address and port.

The example I got from Microsoft included this as the path: http://localhost and that does not seem to work once you add SSL.

This is the batch file I use to backup my Sharepoint site:

@echo off
echo +++++++++++++++++
echo Backup of all sites on the SharePoint 2003 Server echo Written by Ed Hammond
echo +++++++++++++++++
c: cd \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\BIN stsadm.exe -o backup -url http://localhost -filename D:\SharePoint_backup.dat -overwrite
echo Backup completed

Now just replace localhost with the IP address of your sharepoint server and you'll be set.
