Redirect to SSL using IIS7 UrlRewrite

I am using IIS7's new UrlRewrite engine (http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/460/using-url-rewrite-module/). I want to redirect certain pages to an SSL page, and keep other pages off SSL for unneccessary encryption processing.

So far I have the redirect to SSL rule started, but it is not working. I am trying to keep a list of secure pages in the rewritemaps for easy maintenance and adding more secure pages in the future. Does anyone see why this is not working?
<rules>
	<rule name="RequiresSSL-Redirect" stopProcessing="true">
		<match url="(.+)" />
		<conditions>
			<add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" />
			<add input="{RequiresSSL:{R:1}}" pattern="(.+)" />
		</conditions>
		<action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{C:1}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent" />
	</rule>
</rules>
<rewriteMaps>
	<rewriteMap name="RequiresSSL">
		<add key="path/to/secure/page.aspx" value="path/to/secure/page.aspx" />
		<add key="nextpath/to/secure/page.aspx" value="nextpath/to/secure/page.aspx" />
	</rewriteMap>
</rewriteMaps>

You might want to try this ... http://www.codescene.com/2006/03/redirecting-http-to-https-usin.php

The method here is that you just enable the SSL required for the pages that require it and then let the built-in error pages handle the redirection for you by customizing the 403.4 error code for the site or specific sub-site or directory.  I have used this in the past and it works well.  You can do this for an entire site, just make the entire site SSL required and remove the requirement for this one redirect page.

If you want to use the rewrite capability then check out this page ... http://ruslany.net/2009/04/10-url-rewriting-tips-and-tricks/

It has rules for a number of common rewrite situations, including http to https.

what is happening that is different to what you expect?  Does it throw an error or does it not switch to ssl when you think it should?

Cheers.
