I just published a Sitefinity project to the root of a server with an enabled SSL certificate. No redirects are set in IIS7.5, and the edge server forwards SSL and non-SSL requests using default ports. The page https://mysite/test.txt (dummy test file) displays like expected, but the web could otherwise not be accessed using https://mysite/home.aspx as it redirects to http://mysite/home.aspx.
After looking over all IIS and web.config once more I decided to test the Sitefinity page property setting "Require SSL", displaying help text "Specifies whether this page will require a secured socket connection
(HTTPS). There should be a SSL installed on the server.".
Ok, this time https://mysite/home.aspx stays and http://mysite/home.aspx is redirected to https://mysite/home.aspx.
Is this behavior intended?
I had hoped that SSL could be requested optionally by the user (writing https), for some scenarios.
Any setting to work this in web.config?
