HTTP Redirect Utility

Postby Kent Briggs » Tue Nov 27, 2018 5:25 pm

I have created a new utility here that may be of interest to Gold sites running SSL without a web server:
http://www.briggsoft.com/docs/pmavens/Utilities.htm#redirect

This utility is for Gold edition owners that have SSL encryption enabled on port 443 and are not running a separate web server or using a reverse proxy like Cloudflare to perform redirects for them. This utility acts as a simple web server on port 80 and then redirects all HTTP traffic to HTTPS automatically. Poker Mavens cannot do this itself since it currently can only bind to one file port so any attempt to connect to http://www.yourdomain.com will fail. This utility will catch that http connection attempt and perform a "301 Redirect" to the Poker Mavens server at https://www.yourdomain.com.

You will need to add Redirect.exe to the Windows Firewall "Allow" list to get it to work.
