SharePoint 2007 https folder links

I have a SharePoint 2007 website (port 80) that is expanded into a secure (port 443) https site as well.  Both use Forms Based Authentication.  Throughout the site I have pages that display library web parts.  The libraries contain folders.

If I am on the port 80 site, and I click the folders in these web parts, or even if I am on the library itself, the folders open normally, showing the content of that folder.  However, when on the 443 site, I click the link, it seems to go to that subfolder, but immediately forwards to the site home page.  This behavior is on the web part and on the library web pages themselves.

If I hover over the folder, right click, copy the URL and paste it right into the address line, the folder come up just fine.

However, I know that SharePoint doesn't just render a link, no matter what the hover shows.  So I dug into the rendered source, found the link for a folder, saw the onclick="javascript:EnterFolder(, and that has a link to the folder, but using its equivalent port 80 URL, not the 443.  In other words, "http" instead of the proper "httpS"

The users and the sponsors of the site really like the convienence of the folders, but this behavior makes the site unusable for our outside users coming in on the 443 site.

So what is going on here, and is it possible to fix?

Thanks,

Don B

I found this, which seems to describe the situation, except that they show the Page Cannot Be Displayed, where mine just returns to the home page.  The solution they list involves ISA.  I'd rather have a SharePoint solution, or maybe IIS.

One last thing. I said it appeared it was forwarding correctly on the click, then returning to the home page.  Actually I think it is simply failing and then returning to the home page.

I'll have to talk this over with our Network guys to make sure that the ISA / TMG settings are correct.  But I can tell you that the public AAM are as described in this document, but we have no internal mappings added.

Our firewall admin had to make a firewall policy change, to replace the offending JavaScript code.  In our case, it was like this:

http:\u002f\u002fOUR.SITENAME.COM

With this...

httpS:\u002f\u002fOUR.SITENAME.COM

Changing the ISA, AAM mappings didn't do anything, and we tried a bunch of combinations.

You are welcome to spread the points as you please.  But it was not an ISA, AAM problem.
