Problem redirecting HTTPS site in iis8.5 / url rewrite 3

Hi all,

I really could use some help from the experts out there...

We use a reverse proxy to publish several http sites to the outside world, all are running fine.

Now I need to give access to an internal HTPPS site.

- internal HTTPS site (https://tobadata.internal.lan)  is accessible from the reverse proxyserver running urlrewrite 3.0, all certifcates are OK, no errors
- certificate for the external url (ess.outside.be) is installed on the rproxy server
- certificate is bound to the specific webserver running on the rproxy server.

I have copied the simple basic rule I normally use for my HTTP sites


        <rewrite>
            <rules>
                <rule name="ReverseProxyInboundRule1" enabled="true" patternSyntax="Wildcard" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url="*" />
                    <conditions>
                        <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="On" />
                    </conditions>
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="https://tobadata.internal.lan/{R:0}" />
                </rule>
            </rules>
        </rewrite>

When using this setup, I'm getting an error "502 - Webserver received an invalid response while acting as a gateway or proxy server"

I have enabled failed request tracing, capturing 502 errors, but this isn't helping me, since it seems that the rewrite rule works as expected?

1. What are you using for a proxy?
2. Is there an SSL cert installed and configured on the destination server for the site?
3. Are there any corresponding Application Event Log entries for this error?

I just noticed that you are using ARR, can you post the ARR logs from when the error occurs?

After some extensive trial-and-error (and searching the deep end of Google)  I was able to write a new rule that more or less seemed to work...
