CSS SSL and link modification problem

Hi all

We have a problem using our CSS to offload SSL for a site. The offload works for the first connection, but the web application seems to be rewriting relative links as absolute links.

For example, a user hits the site at https://www.mydomain.com. The CSS is configured to terminate the SSL traffic, and then send HTTP to the internal web server on TCP/81.

What we're seeing in the client's browser is that all links are being returned as http://www.mydomain.com:81/... instead of https://www.mydomain.com/...

Any idea of how we can do this without messing around with the web server too much? I.e. is there a way on the CSS to do link translation?

Thanks

Re: CSS SSL and link modification problem

If the link are indeed hardcoded like this, there is nothing the CSS can do.

Bad server design.

If the server is returning a redirect to http://... the CSS can intercept it and rewrite it to https.

Please verify if there is a redirect.

Thanks Gilles. I agree that the problem is poor design/coding, and have sent it to someone else to fix. Thanks for your assistance.
