I've today finally managed to setup a ssl certificate on my test server (xp pro / iis5.1) so website / application is accessible only via https which is great.
However, I'd ideally like a landing page which requires no security with a link to the 'secure area'. At the moment, a normal http request gives the error 'must be viewed over a secure channel' which is as expected. Basically, I'm envisaging a normal website residing on a server, with a secure login page available to use an internal application.
I'm unsure how to achieve my goal or whether it's possible on xp. Any help appreciated, thanks.
