IsSecureConnect ion with Load Balancer

We're in the process of putting a load balancer into the mix. The setup
will require that we run SSL on the load balancer. Checking for
request.IsSecur eConnection worked fine when the SSL certificate was on the
web server. Now it returns false when SSL is on the load balancer. Is
there a way to check for a secure connection when SSL is on the load
balancer?

TIA

You would need the LoadBalancer to forward the request with SSL. there is no
way to check apart from that.

Hi Ciaran,

Thanks for your response.

Is it possible to look for the client port via a custom header?

Frankly, i need session variables to persist regardless of load balancing. My hoster says save them in files, yuk. Are there any other thoughts The problem is that the session variables are lost when the load is switched to another server. Also, i am locked out, because there is now a cookie on my PC that will not expire until the timeout has expired? Max

Hi, We use a load balancer for one of our web app. The application allows users to upload files/images, which gets uploaded to the server the user is connected to. My quesiton is how to synchronize the uploaded files between 2 web servers? What is the common practice when using a load balancer to share the resources, especially images that are hard to be read from a UNC. Any tips are greatly appreciated. TIA.

We have service oriented architecture that comprises of a number of Win2k/IIS boxes. Some of these web service applications access an AS400 system for data acess (We are using HitSoftware's Ritmo .net native driver). For fail over we route these requests through a hardware based load balancer (BigIP). The BigIP allows us to fail over to a secondary AS400 system in case the primary one fails.

I am trying to implement Load Balancing but facing some problems: A Web farm usually consists of 2 or more computers, orchestrated by some form of load balancing. Consider my scenario: 1. I have an Intranet site say www.intranet.com 2. I arrive at a load balancing machine 3. This machine redirectes me to the machine WebServer01 (contents from www.01.intranet.com are shown) 4. I request another page, for example

I have a website developed in .Net 1.1 and is running on three servers under a load balancer. I want to add another server to the load balancer which will have the same application but converted to 2.0. My app does not store anything in the session, but is dependent on Viewstate and cookies. My doubt is that whether Viewstate generated by 1.1 can be understood by 2.0 and vice versa. Thanks

Hi All, We've been using Request.IsSecureConnection for some time to drop in and out of SSL for various sections of our web application. We have recently change server architecture though as we now accept all requests to our FreeBSD Apache cluster which then proxies the requests to the Windows Server. As the proxy request is done over plaintext HTTP the Request.IsSecureConnection no longer works correctly.
