CSM-S - Redirect from HTTPS to HTTP

Unanswered Question

Hi, this is the reverse from what is usually done. The user enters a URL starting with 'https'. This comes into the CSM-S, and I do not want it to hit the SSL daughter card at all. I want to redirect to 'http' then send to real servers, bypassing the SSL module. After entering the 'webhost relocation command' there is no sub-command to do anything other than 'ssl'. Is there a way to accomplish this?

you'll need to use the ssl daughtercard anyway.

The reason is that the traffic is encrypted as soon as the client uses https:// as the url.

So, to send a redirect response, you need to encrypt it since this is what the client expect and the encryption can only be done by the daughtercard.
