Problem for showing HTTP content on HTTPS

    Hi,

    I have a webpage which is accessible on HTTPS protocol as it is on a machine
    which is configured to use 443 port.
    But this webpage has to show images from a machine which exposes it on HTTP
    and not HTTPS.
    So on my webpage I had to write <img
    src="http://photomachine/service1/folder1/abc.jpg" />

    Now whenever I open my webpage (https) from IE I get the the warning that it
    contains some non-secure items.
    I do not want this. For it option which I thought of is to make photomachine
    also https, but for it we will have to Buy another
    certificate from VeriSign. Is there any workaround for this.

    Simply, how to show HTTP content on HTTPS without that pop-up everytime.

    In anticipation of an earliest reply...

    TIA
    Nikhil.

  2. Hi,

    Dun think there is a straight workaround to this situation, Nikhil.

    The popup window is a built-in security feature that cannot be overriden.

    The only way I can think of is to use the same cert for the sites of the
    same machine but I dun think you can do that for different machines.

    Thats my 2 cts worth...

    Is there a way you can serve the images from the machine which has the
    certificate? Either physically put the images on the webserver, or map a
    drive from the web server to the machine which has the images, and create a
    virtual folder in IIS that points to the remote machine so that the images
    are all being served from the web server. Why are the images being served
    from a seperate machine?

    It is important to note that some programs or HTTP proxies designed to
    suppress banner adverts, will filter out images which are not on the same
    server as the web page - meaning that if the images are not served from the
    same machine, they may not display at all! Probably only a few people will
    be in this situation, but it's something to think about.
