I've been hosting a domain on a Win2003 server for the last 3 or 4 years but I now need to make this domain accessible only via https.
I've installed the certificate correctly and it works fine (the server hosts several domains, but for this domain it is hosted on a different public IP address) but I'm struggling to get IIS to just transfer all users who go to www.domain.com to https://www.domain.com
I've found the "require secure channel" option in IIS, but checking this results in anyone who fails to type the https part to see an error message (below). What's the best way to redirect users to the https site (without the user having to worry about it)?
The page must be viewed over a secure channel The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Please try the following: Type https:// at the beginning of the address you are attempting to reach and press ENTER. HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden: SSL is required to view this resource.
