Google Lexicon

Looks like Jake has made his impression on it:

On a side note, I almost emailed Jake today for an IIS/SSL/Coldfusion redirect situation, but I figured it out. I think he would most likely laugh at the way I solved it, but what the heck, I was proud. What kills me is if it were on Apache I would not have needed to do so much as a google search. .htaccess rules, microsoft drools.

  1. Did you do it within IIS or with CF?
    I only really know how to do the latter, but I know the former is possible and probably smarter.

  2. I didn’t feel like learning ColdFusion, so in IIS I changed the TCP port on the default website to 88, required SSL, then created a new website that ran on port 80. The only file in the new website (default.htm) was a refresh to https:// kicking it up to the SSL only side. Just in case someone did some tricky bookmarking they shouldn’t have, I set the 404 to point to the same default refresh page.

    So now instead of an ugly error when they forget the “s” in https, it throws them to a login page. It may not be the prettiest, but I think it is kinda slick.
