I used the vanilla example in IIRF documentation to redirect a http site to a https site. The http site is protected and thus has an authentication dialog. It behaves like this:

http://myserver A dialog box pops up for username and password from http://myserver. I log in and then the dialog box pops up again with

https://myserver Obviously, this is problematic since I am entering username/password twice and in one of them there is no SSL. Is there a workaround?
