HTTP Redirect

I am trying to figure out how to redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS. Basically I want a user who visits http://www.company.com to be redirected to https://www.company.com transparently. On my VIP for that web server I have the External Port set to 80 and Map to Port to 443 but it doesn' t seem to work. Is there anything I need to be doing?

Hi, You cant do it like that, http and https are two different protocols, The redirect has to be done on the webserver itself
