Hello,

We have a client that uses our custom purchase pages to sell travel insurance to their customers.  We have hidden everything about our company on the custom purchase page, except for the url, which mentions our name.  They want to access a url with a different domain name for this page.

I can easily do this using RewriteProxy, but as soon as I access an encrypted page, the browser complains that the certificate does not match the domain.

Naturally this is how a browser should behave, but I was wondering if there is an option that I missed.  Can I rewrite a header, or something that will at least allow the browser to accept this certificate without a prompt?

We want to avoid having to setup a new domain, unique IP, and SSL cert for this.

Our existing config is this:
# Special proxy rewrite for HTH
RewriteCond Host: www.newdomain.com
RewriteProxy (.+) http\://www.currentdomain.com/$1 [H,I]


Thanks,
Marc

Normally each site should have it's own certificate. So you use RewriteProxy to set up SSL connection with your secured page and then the company will need to have their own certificate to secure connection between their web site and client. So there should be two certificates here. And no H flag can be used.
Also please note that certificate should be installed as globally trusted on the machine running ISAPI_Rewrite.
