Redirect certain requests to https using URL->URL redirection

We would like to be able to redirect certain requests to https using URL->URL redirection.

Redirection across protocols (http to https or vice-versa) can only be done through external redirection, because the browser must initiate the connection. SSL is a network-level protocol requiring a prescribed handshake between the browser and the server. The server cannot arbitrarily convert a non-SSL session into an SSL session.


Thus we are requesting to include the feature in coming releases of Domino .

    There are two way of doing this in Domino natively, without using 3rd party products.

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for?



    Specific Redirection

    If the Server Document is configured to load configurations from "Internet Site Documents", a "Web Site Rule" of type "Redirection" can be created, whereby a URL pattern for incoming URL's can be specified, and a "Redirect to URL" (static URL).

    This could be used to redirect specific URL's to https.


    Generic Redirection

    Domino can redirect all traffic from port 80 "to SSL".

    Effectively, this will respond to Browsers with a redirection, requesting to change the scheme to https.

    This can be configured  in the Server Document, under "Ports"-"Internet Ports"-"Web"-"TCP/IP Port Status" (set to: "Redirect to SSL").

    Additionally, a list of URI's could be specified, which should be excluded from this automatic redirection to SSL. This is achieved by using the notes.ini variable "HTTPPublicUrls".
