I recently installed a site certificate to secure our website. We sell software and there are many installed users who are using some pre-website change versions of our software. Internally, the software checks a text file on the server to parse certain information to see if a newer version exists.
Specifically it tries to download a file with this URL:
That is, of course, now failing with 403 forbidden, so those users have no way of knowing if an update is available unless they visit the site.
I have tried setting up a URL Rewrite Inbound rule in IIS Manager, but I'm not having any luck with this. I am not an expert at this.
What I would like to do is have
be redirected to:
http://www.example.com/ gets redirected automatically to
https://www.example.com so I feel there must be a way to have the text file request redirected as well.
Any help here would be much appreciated, I'm out of my element here.
