Problem with move from iis6 to iis7.5 http redirect

Hi Experts I've got a slight problem with transferring a site from IIS6 to IIS7.5
The website has one site physical directory of files which primarily served the private side via HTTPS, but within the site was a public directory which had its own website in iis with a redirect to the corresponding site.
The way it  worked was that if you went to the private site was displayed as expected (secure) and when you went to the viewer was redirected to the public subdirectory under as an  HTTP:// address (not secure). I've shown the  website configurations below.

This all worked great until moving servers to a new server running IIS7.5. I've replicated the settings pretty much as good as I can but i get an error from browser saying there is an error
"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."
So as a temporary measure in having to redirect to which does the job put it is running via HTTPS where the is no need and any old bookmarks tot eh public site don't work any more.

You help is appreciated.

Use URL rewrite for this in IIS 7.x

Have a look here for http to https rewrites that should give you what you need.
