HTTP to HTTPS redirect resulting in a loop

1 New Member
Just before I go an tell my sys admin that the server has problems I wanted to run this by everyone on here. Basically we have a few pages that need to be sent over https. Everything I have found on the internet resulted in this code

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. If (Request.ServerVariables("HTTPS") = "off") Then
  2.         srvname = Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
  3.         scrname = Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")
  4.         Response.Redirect("https://" & srvname & scrname)
  5.     End If
I will say that this code has worked for me over a month and then all of the sudden it stops working and always gives a redirect loop error. I have already checked that the ServerVariables is "off" during an http request and it is "on" during an https request.

Honestly, this code should work and it has been working until recently. Unfortunately my sysadmin believes it is faulty code and told me to rewrite it, claiming that his server could "have no faults."

Anyone have an idea or should this code work? btw it is being run on IIS 6

Just a thought, but are you sure you are correctly comparing strings? I use this, which returns a numeric value so I don't have to worry about uppercase and lowercase comparison differences:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. i = Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_PORT_SECURE")
  2. '// returns 1 or 0
You could still use yours, but ensure the case of the result is what you expect:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. If (lcase(Request.ServerVariables("HTTPS")) = "off") Then 
  2.    srvname = Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME") 
  3.    scrname = Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME") 
  4.    Response.Redirect("https://" & srvname & scrname)
  5. End If

I have an ASP site, an SSL certificate, and an {Order page}. I want to use "https" for the {Order page} and "http" for all others. Each page "includes" a common ".asp" file which detects the current protocol and page via the Request.ServerVariables(): "SERVER_PORT_SECURE" and "SCRIPT_NAME", respectively. ( If "SERVER_PORT_SECURE" = 1 Then "https" else http". )

When I am using server-side button to switch from https to http by using response.redirect "http://a.apsx" in response to the client event, I am still at the https environment (ie. the address bar on the IE is https://a.aspx). However, when using hyperlink control, there is no mis-representation. Can anyone advise how to deal with this? Is it .NET bug?

I'm sending users to a secure page https to fill out a registration form. When they're done I show a thank you page. I need to return the user to http mode after filling out the form. If I use response.redirect I get a security warning when transitioning from https to http. Is there an accepted way to avoid having the user see this? Thanks.
