First up, I'm an IIS7 newbie, so this is probably something obvious.
We've got a new server, with an SSL certificate already installed by our hosting company and visible in IIS manager on the server node.
In the bindings for our site we've got port 443 set up OK with the correct certificate (as far as I can tell).
The problem is, if you connect via a browser using https you're instantly redirected back to http (and then see the site fine). We're trying to put the entire site behind ssl, but if under "ssl settings" we tick "require ssl", your browser is still redirected to http, and then promptly gets a connection refused! (which makes sense kinda)
I've run an IIS SSL diagnostic tool (from http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vijaysk/archive/2009/09/20/ssl-diagnostics-tool-for-iis-7.aspx ) and everything appears OK but I'm not really sure what I'm looking at. I'll post the log only if requested, as it's riddled with server references that I'll have to filter out for security.
Final details - we're using ASP.Net and are using forms auth if that matters any. The server is Windows 2008 SP2 64bit.
