Secure and nonsecure pages.

P: n/a
All,

I'm having a WebApp working through a secure connection (https). One of my
pages is calling an external site to show the geographical map, this site is
not secure and it should be calling inside the frame on the secure page. The
browser (IE) complains that the page has secure and non-secure items. When
we click Yes, it continues and works just fine.

Do we have any method to tell the browser do not show this warning on this
page only? It will be annoying for the users if I can't disable that. But
how? Is it possible to add some site to a trustable site list to ignore or
avoid any warning if we show this site inside the secure page but using a
non-secure connection?

Thanks,
Just D.

You can try setting "Display mixed content" security option to Enable. Find
it in Tools-Internet Options-Security-Custom level. It might not help
though. I am not sure about exact rules for this setting.

its a browser setting, you have no control, the users have to change their
settings (but its no recommened).

your other option is to create a proxy page on your site, that uses
webclient to fetch the html from the other site. you will need to parse the
html and replace img url with a local url that fetches the image (or cache
the images on your site).

Hi Bruce,

Yea, I was thinking about it, but it's more complicated and harder to write.

Thanks,
