I have followed steps outlined in Comodo Knowledge Base

Edited my /etc/apache2/apache2.conf and /etc/apache2/mods-available/ssl.conf by adding

<VirtualHost 197.***.**.**:443>
     SSLEngine On
     SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/crt/www_mydomain_com.crt
     SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/key/www_mydomain_com.key
     SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/ssl/crt/www_mydomain_com.ca-bundle

     ServerAdmin info@mydomain.com
     ServerName www.mydomain.com
     DocumentRoot /var/www/
     ErrorLog   /var/www/logs/error.log
     CustomLog /var/www/logs/access.log combined

I also have LoadModule ssl_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_ssl.so I tested for HTTS using telnet www.mydomain.com https but its not working. Error is telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

Could someone kindly point me to the right direction?

You forgot to define the server port in the VirtualHost statement.

Don't forget to fully test your ssl configuration, for example with this checker https://sslcheck.globalsign.com/

Changed. Did a few tweaks and now am getting Unknown (No secure protocols supported). It's not finding my certificates –  Kenyana Dec 10 '12 at 20:31
