ACE redirect with SSL and subdirectory

I want to have a serverfarm that has the ability to do the following:

1.  When user types in, the user is redirected to

2.  When user types in, the user is redirected to

3.  SSL rewrite occurs for both

I have configured this and everything works fine with some exceptions on the redirects.

A.  I cannot get #2 above to work.  Only the http to https redirect works.  Is there a different way to get to to work?

B.  When using #1 above, the user clicks on a link on the page and the link seems to take the user back to my original http: to https: redirect instead of using the URL in the link that was clicked.  I am using a "webhost-redirection https://%h/portal/default.aspx 302" for my rserver redirect.  I have tried a variety of other ways.  If I choose "webhost-redirection https://%h/portal/%p 302, then I end up getting which obviously doesn't work either.  The only way I can seem to get the redirect to work properly is if I have it done on the server itself ( to

Is this a common issue for http to https: redirect with subdirectories?

Is there a way I can force the ACE to change any URLs from http to https so that after the initial 302 redirect, any link clicked will change http to https?

Please show us your config, especially the 'ssl url rewrite' part.

Re: ACE redirect with SSL and subdirectory

The problem is most probably your class-map which catches too much url (including the ones not to be redirected).

Without the config and a sniffer trace to see the http requests and responses, it will be difficult to help you.
