Hard to tell without knowing the version of the isapi redirector, not 
having your configuration. This looks like:

- it is trying to use a worker named ajp13 to connect to Tomcat. Lile y 
you have configured the redirector to use this worker within your file

- the redirector doesn't know how to use this worker. Either you are 
missing the configuration file or there is no 
definition for a worker named ajp13 in the file.

A good starting point for a file is the example file 
contained in the source distribution of version 1.2.30. Please do also 
use this version of the redirector.

Note: from the point of view of Tomcat it doesn't really matter whether 
you are talking http or https in the browser. This protocol is only used 
between the browser and IIS. Between IIS and Tomcat when using the isapi 
redirector the protocol is always AJP13 (it is just coincidence, that 
this is the same name as the name of the worker in your logs). The 
protocol is similar to HTTP but binary and it transports the information 
whether the browser used http or https, so Tomcat is aware of this. This 
protocol does not use the http or https connectors in server.xml, only 
the AJP13 connector.

Two connectors, both on port 8009, will not work. Use the latter one.
