    I'm not sure what problem you're trying to solve, but my guess is that redirecting the request is not the correct way to handle it. The purpose of HTTPS is to encrypt the request as is moves from the client to the server. If you were to redirect an HTTP request to HTTPS, it's too late for the encryption to do any good. The valuable data has already been transmitted. On the other hand, I could be completely off base about what you're trying to accomplish. :)

    Basically what has happened is we now require ssl on our server. I'm trying to save the users (that have a particular link to our site bookmarked) from getting the 403.4 ssl required error. I just want to take their inital request (from them clicking the bookmark) and redirecting to the ssl so it will be seemless. Once that happens all future requests will be secure. Hopefully this explains my situation alittle better. TIA Brian

    I am dealing with the same issue exactly. However, all the examples noted are in c#. I need something in VB. My knowledge of c# are limited and, therefore, I do not feel confident in converting it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
