CSS 11500 and Redirections

Answered Question
Aug 12th, 2009

Ok, so I have this particular problem and I'm not sure if there's a way to overcome this.

I have a content rule which is listening to port 80 (let's say ip address 192.168.1.1), when that content rule is hit, the content rule redirects that query to port 443 in the same ip address (192.168.1.1) so we can always force they come to port 443 no matter what.

The problem I have is this, if someone hits https://192.168.1.1/MyFolder/MyApp/ it works fine, but when someone hits that same URL coming from port 80, the content rule redirects to the root.

If they go to https://192.168.1.1/MyFolder/MyApp/ they are being redirected to 192.168.1.1 only.

is there a way to overcome this? maybe saving the URL portion in a variable and then pass it along the redicrection?

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.
