Redirect Loop?

    Please can someone put me out of my misery. I am used a shared hosting
    provider to host my asp website. I need certain pages of my site to be
    viewed over SSL. I have therefore inserted the following code into the
    Page_Load event of a page that needs to be viewed over SSL:-

    Dim strURL As String = ""
    If Not Request.IsSecureConnection Then
    strURL = Request.Url.AbsoluteUri.Replace("http://", "https://")
    Response.Redirect(strURL, True)
    End If

    On IE the page never loads, and on Firefox I get a message stating that the
    redirection limit has been exceeded.

    Have I inadvertently caused a loop, and if so, why? Many thanks in advance.

    I use this:

    If Request.ServerVariables("HTTPS") = "off" Then
    Response.Redirect "https://" & Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST") &
    Request.ServerVariables("URL") & "?" &
    End If

    "As" is not ASP vbscript!

    Request.IsSecureConnection is not classic ASP, I think.

    This some kind of Javascriptlike VBscript, perhaps

    calssic ASP-vbscript:

    strURL = Replace(strURL,"http://", "https://")

    Response.Redirect has only one parameter.

    And even if it had two,
    using () around them would result in an error,
    as ASP statements [and functions used as statements] do not use them.

    Strange, but you are mixing serverside and clientside terminology.

    Better show your errors, to see if they are serverside or browser errors.

    Why a loop?
    That is classic ASP VBS!

    As noted by Evertjian, this does not appear to be classic ASP vbscript
    code, so:

    There was no way for you to know it (except maybe by browsing through
    some of the previous questions before posting yours - always a
    recommended practice), but this is a classic (COM-based) asp newsgroup.
    ASP.Net is a different technology from classic ASP. While you may be
    lucky enough to find a dotnet-savvy person here who can answer your
    question, you can eliminate the luck factor by posting your question to
    a newsgroup where the dotnet-savvy people hang out. I suggest


    There are also forums at where you can find a lot of people
    to help you.
