Citrix XenApp Web Interface how to force https and have authentication not break

I am running a Citrix server and run a web interface  from it.  Currently it is working fine with http, I am wanting to force https.  What I have tried so far breaks the authentication. The web interface is the default site and have tried to remove the port 80 binding and make a second site with a java script that redirects to the https site.  The redirector works however, when the user tries to log in, the authentication no longer works.  This feels like there is something in the authentication of the site that needs the binding to be set to the web interface. If I roll back the port 80 binding back to the default site, restart web svc, the authentication works again.

what version of Web interface are you using?

Carl WebsterCommented:
Just use the free Citrix Secure Gateway and direct all users to the CSG DNS name.  That will force all users to use SSL.

i.e. https://csg.domain.com
