Subject [users@httpd] ssl need explicit https
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2012 23:30:30 GMT
hello world,

i have this webserver (apache 2.2.15 redhat) on which i want a vhost with
ssl. i only want one nic, so i configured a new public ip to nat its port
443 into my local ssl port (not 443) for the vhost. The nat tunnels are
open and works as expected.
However when i setup apache to listen on the nonstandard ssl port and
enable ssl, the client/browser is met with a requirement to switch to
https. gives:

400 bad request
yada yada
please visit

So i want apache to allow 443 on standard http protocol to automatically
forward to https protocol.
I tried rewriting the url to use https; though rewriting rules was not
respected at all...
How can i do this?
