comment Elegantly Enforcing SSL in IIS 6.0
Thanks for that. I really was looking for a server-side (non-code specific) solution for this as we're marking the entire domain as requiring SSL. I'll keep this in mind for any future apps.

As for the code option, the HTTP variant of the site needs to be turned off, that's the whole reason for needing to enforce SSL to begin with. Simply doing a redirect in code (unless it's done at a high level so that it happens on any page) could potentially allow for bookmarked pages to be viewed over the insecure link.

OK. Thanks. I pretty much figured that was the answer. I'd really love to see an "auto-forward" feature in IIS 8 to make this sort of thing automatic. Seems a waste to clog up the IIS metabase with extra sites that are simply redirects.
