When Using Internet Explorer With Oracle iPlanet Web Server, Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS Destination Where Destination URL Has Authentication In Place, Authentication Window Appears To Precede Redirect

(Doc ID 1565452.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 6.1 to 7.0 [Release 6.1 to 7.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When using Internet Explorer, with Oracle iPlanet Web Server is set up to do a redirect from non-SSL to SSL, and authentication is configured for the redirect destination, the redirect appears to be preceded by the authentication request as the pop-up authentication window in IE does not indicate HTTPS, and instead says "The server www.hostname.com requires a username and password". This is not expected behavior.
