I need to redirect one SSL site to another SSL site.

For example, I control https://sitea.michael.com but I want the traffic there to be forwarded to https://siteb.notinmycontrol.com

I don't control the DNS on notinmycontrol.com and anyway there's no way for them to install a michael.com cert on their servers.

If I'm running an Apache server, this works via mod_proxy and mod_ssl

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName sitea.michael.com
  ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        SSLProxyEngine on
        ProxyPass / https://siteb.notinmycontrol.com/
        ProxyPassReverse / https://siteb.notinmycontrol.com/

        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log
        LogLevel warn

        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined
        ServerSignature On

Is there an equivalent way to do this if I'm running an IIS server?

If you are on IIS 7 or higher, you should be able to use ARR as a reverse proxy.


Will this work for you?


  • @user18330 seems promising but the site and the download (and the fact that you have a really generic username) make it seem kind of sketchy... any further info? Oct 26, 2010 at 21:52

No there is no possibility to Reverse Proxy with IIS this is what ISA Server is for.
