I have a new Windows Server 2008 server with Exchange 2007 installed. Need to make this AS SIMPLE as possible for users. Therefore, what I want to do is somehow create a redirector from http to https, so when people goto http://owa.mydomain.com it redirectors to https://owa.mydomain.com. However, I need to make sure SSL and 128 bit encrption stays enabled.

I read somewhere that I can change the custom ERROR page you get which is a general 403 error and put a simple redirector page in there which I did. Now, when you goto http://owa.mydomain.com, I get an error that this website requires you to login. I have anonomous access enabled and I knew how to do it in IIS6 but cannot for the life of me figure it out in IIS7. HELP!

Hi,

it should work exactly the same way with IIS7 as it does for IIS6.  The error page to change is the 'https required' (403.4 - maybe also 403.5 if you want to force 128 bits).  The new error page must be accessible to the interactive web user - so it might be a good idea to modify the default rather than try to define a new one on a different location.

Cheers.

Hi,

when you see that message - what URL is in the browser location field?  (same as you entered, or the new location - with https?)

Also, can you show us what you put in that custom error page?

Cheers.

There is another method where you create a separate HTTP website and redirect. I just used this for one of our clients who had a lot of problems with the first method using Macs and some older versions of Firefox.
